*Be sure to let the chocolate cool until it is slightly warm before you start to dip the balloons or else they could pop.
* Your balloons should be about the size of an orange in order to get 4 bowls out of this recipe.
* When the bowls are frozen and you are ready to deflate the balloon make a small hole near the top so that the air escapes calm and slowly. If the balloon is pulled from the bowl too forcefully it may tear the bowl and you'll just have to eat it. Bummer right?
*If the bottom of the bowls have holes in them no problems. Fill them in with melted chocolate and refreeze.
*If the walls of the bowl tears slightly, use melted chocolate as glue and refreeze.
*These bowls may take a little practice. After making the 1st bowl you'll catch on.
