How To Make Edible Chocolate Bowls

Does it really matter what goes in the bowl? Hardly. But a massive chocolate sundae would be pretty nice. It is summer after all. This is an easy tutorial on how to make edible chocolate bowls like what you see here.
If you're using white chocolate, you can add some color to create petal-like bowls. How cute!
You will need:
12 ounces (1 bag) white candy melts
6 ounces (1/2 bag) pink or other color candy melts
12 small balloons (water balloons work great)
1 toothpick
Non-stick mat or parchment paper
2 microwave-safe mixing bowls
2 rubber spatulas
Safety pin
1. Blow up the small balloons--not the large ones. No need for helium.
In two separate bowls, melt the candy melts according to the manufacturer's instructions in the microwave. If the melted mixtures are too thick, you can add a teaspoon of oil and stir into them.
To create petals, add a few drops of the pink (or any other candy melt color) and swirl with a tooth pick.
Gently dip the balloon in the candy melt.
Place the dipped balloons onto parchment paper or silicone sheet to set up, which may take a couple hours. Feel free to chill in the fridge to speed this up.
Pop the balloons with a safety pin and carefully pull out the balloon from the chocolate bowl. Then fill it with all sorts of ice cream madness and syrup! DELISH! For more kitchen tutorials, click here.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Shot Glasses
In honor of National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day, here is a deliciously fun way to get your chocolate chip cookie fix during happy hour: Chocolate Chip Cookie Shot Glasses! And in case you think I am making this holiday up, you can find it , and a ton of other national holidays that will blow your mind at National Day Calendar online. This 4 1/2 star recipe comes from All Recipes user, Nicole Faust Hunt, called "Absolutely The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies." To make the shot glasses, you will need a 'popover' pan. Otherwise, you can make these using small cupcake pans. However, the shape of the glass will not look like a shot glass. Ingredients: 1 cup butter flavored shortening (not butter) 3/4 cup white sugar 3/4 cup brown sugar 2 eggs 2 teaspoons Mexican vanilla extrac t2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon salt 2 cups milk chocolate chips Chocolate candy melts (for later) Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease the pan. In a large bowl, cream together the butter flavored shortening, brown sugar and white sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition, then stir in the vanilla .Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; gradually stir into the creamed mixture. Finally, fold in the chocolate chips. Press the cookie dough into the popover pan bottom and sides. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until light brown. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Separately, melt the chocolate candy melts in a microwave or a double boiler. Once the cookie shot glasses have cooled, spoon in the candy melts, covering the bottom and inside cookie walls. This will harden relatively quick, or you can put it in the fridge. This coating will prevent liquids from being absorbed into the cookie. After this is all done, fill these with milk for the 20 and younger crowd or click here for imbibery goodness that you can fill your chocolate chip cookie shot glasses with!

Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bites ♥ – Sally's Baking Addiction
Oh my goodness gracious I need these in front of me RIGHT NOW. I'm obsessed. Those adorably tiny chocolate chips? And sweet caramel goodness? And Oreo cookie crust?! And CHEESECAKE, for Pete's sake?!? It just really couldn't be any better, dessert-wise. Sally's Baking Addiction, I salute you for creating this incredible little treat that's sure to be the reason I gain 300 pounds over the next month. ♥ To make your own batch of these decadent little treats, you will need: 18 whole Oreos (Double Stuf or regular) 1/4 cup (60g) unsalted butter, melted 16 oz (448g) full-fat cream cheese, softened to room temperature 3/4 cup (150g) granulated sugar 1/4 cup (60g) yogurt (you can also substitute sour cream) 2 large eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 cup (180g) mini semi-sweet chocolate chips homemade salted caramel sauce (you can find the recipe here!) Here's what you do! 1. Preheat your oven to 350°F. Line two cupcake pans with 18 paper or aluminum cupcake liners. 2. Make the crust: Use a food processor to reduce Oreos into a fine, crumbly texture. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine cookie crumbs and melted butter. Spoon one heaping tablespoon of the mixture into each liner, then press down firmly and uniformly with fingers. You should have enough for 16-18 liners. Bake for 5 minutes and allow to cool while you make the filling. 3. Make the filling: In a large mixing bowl, use an electric beater to beat the cream cheese on medium speed until smooth. Add sugar and yogurt, and beat to combined. Turn mixer down to low speed and add eggs one at a time. Finally, beat in vanilla and mini chocolate chips. Remember to scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula as needed! 4. Use a spoon to fill cupcake molds with batter until almost full. Bake for 20-23 minutes. When you remove the cheesecakes from the oven, their centers will still be slightly jiggly and they may have inflated a bit. That's all perfectly normal. Allow to cool at room temperature for an hour. 5. After they've cooled at room temp, place the cheesecakes in the fridge and allow to chill another two hours. Top with salted caramel and additional mini-chips just before serving. Note: You can store cheesecakes in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. Store cheesecakes (without caramel) in the freezer for up to 2 months. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight. Let me know if you make these!! :D I know they're top priority on my To Bake list. Thanks again to Sally's Baking Addiction – all photos and ideas are hers! Happy baking, Vinglers :) Update: Super-awesome Vingler @PikaPixie made a great card showing her experience making these delicious treats! Check it out here for photos :)
Peanut Butter Cup Stuffed S'mores Brownies
When it comes to the campfire roasted, ooey-gooey perfection that is s'mores, I'm a purist. I've never once considered putting anything but two rectangles of good ol' Hershey milk chocolate between marshmallow and graham cracker. But then I found this recipe at Melanie Makes, and I don't care what you say, about blasphemy or anything else – once you've seen this picture, there's no going back. I HAVE to try putting a peanut butter cup on a s'more. It's a physical need. And if I don't do it soon, I might explode. So somebody come over and make these brownies with me tonight, please – it's an emergency. Peanut Butter Cup Stuffed S'mores Brownies Prep Time: 20 min. Cook Time: 45 min. Difficulty: Easy.

14 Mind-blowing Dessert Lasagnas!
I guess these people never got the memo about lasagna being a dinner food – and oh man, am I glad they didn't. These innovative kitchen wizards have turned a saucy Italian cheesefest into a gourmet dessert. This is a food trend that I have NO doubt we'll be seeing soon on upscale dessert menus around the world. It's hip, it's totally different, and it's just the right amount of weird to tickle the imagination. See what you think – which one of these fantastical desserts would you most like to try? (I've tried to give credit where credit is due. All the recipes are linked below; just click on the word "Recipe." Photos belong to respective owners.) :) Chocolate Lasagna Brownies, chocolate pudding, and Oreos – oh my! Add some whipped cream, and you've got a lasagna. (I never, ever thought I would EVER say that sentence.) Recipe by Rachel Schultz, A Household Almanac Apple Pie Lasagna Let me be clear: this is not your grandmother's apple pie. Oh sure, it's got apples, cinnamon, and sugar – but it's also got caramel cream cheese filling, Heath bar toffee bites, and a touch of maple syrup. I have only one word: WANT. Recipe by Beyond Frosting Pumpkin Pie Dessert Lasagna I don't know if they necessarily needed to specify that this was a "dessert lasagna" – I think that's pretty clear from the whole "pumpkin pie" part. But I digress. We're talking pumpkin, Cool Whip, pumpkin spice chips (which exist, apparently!?) and chopped pecans. It might be 91 degrees out today, but suddenly I'm feeling a little autumnal! Recipe by The Cookie Rookie, inspired by Beyond Frosting (who is apparently our dessert lasagna MVP!) S'mores Lasagna And speaking of Beyond Frosting, she's also responsible for this dare-I-say GORGEOUS creation topped with gooey toasted marshmallows. S'mores Lasagna may be an improvement on the already impossibly wonderful campfire dessert, because it's got two types of graham cracker (original AND chocolate), marshmallow fluff, whipped cream, and – for the mess-haters among us – you can eat it with a fork. Recipe by Julianne Bayer of Beyond Frosting (the dessert lasagna goddess herself. soon we'll all be wearing t-shirts with her face on it.) Brownie Brittle Strawberry Lasagna Before we get too carried away in our decadence, Julianne (yep, we're on a first name basis now) has whipped up a lighter version of dessert lasagna featuring a cheesecake filling, dark chocolate pudding, and plenty of strawberries. See? It's got fruit! It's obviously healthy. Yet again, recipe by my idol, Julianne Bayer of Beyond Frosting Nutella Cheesecake Lasagna Okay, so maybe the photography skills are a little lacking on this one, but the concept is so flawless that I had to include it. Nutella and cheesecake, married into one perfect lasagna that is then dusted with brownie mix and chocolate chips. I can't really explain how much I'm salivating right now. (Sorry for that wonderful image.) Recipe by Modern Christian Homemaker Paleo Chocolate Lasagna Eating clean? Don't worry! We've still found the perfect dessert lasagna for you. Interesting ingredients in this one include coconut palm sugar, almond butter, apple cider vinegar, and shredded zucchini. I won't pretend to understand how it all works, but I will trust the author when she says it's delicious. Maybe. Recipe by Vanessa Barejas of Clean Eating with a Dirty Mind (which is an awesome name for a blog) Fabulous Fruit Lasagna Whoa, a dessert lasagna that actually uses noodles! I bet you were wondering when one of these was gonna show up. This lasagna is a delightful conglomeration of fresh berries, mascarpone and ricotta cheeses, brown sugar, nutmeg, cloves, and a pinch of chili powder. Not what I was expecting! It can also be made, the author suggests, with chocolate pasta. Recipe by F.H. Browne, posted on Just a Pinch Chocolate Toast Crunch Lasagna Did you know that Cinnamon Toast Crunch has a chocolaty cousin? Chocolate Toast Crunch adds a special, well, crunchiness to this dessert lasagna. Its creamy filling has a hint of almond flavor. Mmm. Recipe by Cheeky Kitchen, posted on Tablespoon Frozen Snickers Peanut Butter Lasagna It's been pretty hot out, so why not stick your dessert lasagna in the freezer? Dry roasted peanuts, caramel sauce, and little pieces of Snickers? This is exactly what I want to be eating right now. Recipe by Not Your Momma's Cookie Oreo Pumpkin Lasagna Maybe you can't get enough of dessert lasagnas. Maybe you want to try more than one of them. Why not do it at the same time? This recipe is a combination of pumpkin pie and Oreo dessert lasagnas – and I can't think of a single reason it wouldn't be delicious. Recipe by Kitchen Nostalgia Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Lasagna But come on guys, let's be real: this is the dessert lasagna you've been waiting for. Layers of creamy and chocolatey deliciousness topped with mini Reese's cups? Game over. Recipe by Marty's Musings Chocolate Candy Lasagna This take on chocolate lasagna tops it off with yummy and colorful crushed M&Ms! And then you have your choice between caramel and hot fudge drizzle toppings. But I say, Vinglers... why not both? Recipe by Princess Pinky Girl (yes, that is her real name) Chocolate Lasagna 2.0 And finally, we've got one last spin on chocolate lasagna from Center Cut Cook. It features a thick Oreo crust, a sweet whipped cream cheese filling, chocolate pudding, and lots of tiny chocolate chips. I think the width of the crust layer and the crunchiness of the mini-chips set it apart from other versions! Recipe by Center Cut Cook Which one of these crazy creations are you trying first?
