Flower Lolipop's and Chocolate Bowls

Since the kids are off of school today and I am off of work
we thought it would be fun to make something for Easter.
The kids got out the cookbooks and were trying to
agree on one recipe.
No easy task with three kids.

Finally an agreement on chocolate!
They found a recipe to make bowls out of chocolate.
Tony assured us all that it was going to be too difficult! we hear a challenge?
That is the one thing we all agreed on...
We are trying this and proving dad wrong!
While at the store for our supplies we also picked
up white chocolate and flower mold to make
flower lolipops!


white chocolate chips
lolipop sticks
plastic mold
jelly beans

Sarah thought it would be fun to put a jelly bean in the center of each flower!

We melted the chips per the directions on the bag.
(for the record we did comb Sarah's hair this morning...she is blessed with natural mess wave)

We spooned the melted white chocolate over top of the jelly beans.

Inserted the sticks and swirled them around to make sure the entire
stick is coated with chocolate.
Placed them in the refrigerator until set!

We placed each Lolipop in a wrapper and
put them in a small flower pot for

Chocolate Bowls
twist ties

Blow up balloon to the size you want your bowl.
Don't tie the top close, use a twist tie to keep it closed.
Wash and dry the bottom of each balloon.
Cover a sheet tray with foil.

Melt your chocolate
and dip the bottom of the balloon in the chocolate.

Place balloons on sheet tray and put in the refrigerator,
until chocolate is harden.

Okay, up to this point we are thinking it is a piece of cake!
Not too hard....
Here is the tricky part!
After the chocolate is firm you slowly let the air out!
This is key, because if it comes out too fast it will crack the sides of your bowl.
Did you ever try to tell kids to slow down....take it easy....don't go to fast....
Well.....we were left with 3 bowls by the end!
3 kids ~ 3 bowls

They are happy and
that is all that matters!

We always have to try a tester out....
We are enjoying a beautiful summer like day here in Pa..
hope the weather is the same for you!

This post is by the Relatively Unique kids...
my only job in this post was the photographer!
(they wanted you to know)

for a fun Weekend party!
Have a great Easter!

Wendy - Your kids did a great job! The lolipops are so cute and I love how they look in the little pot. I'm glad you ended up with three chocolate bowls. . .two would not have been good!

Way to prove dad wrong (sorry Tony) !

Love the jelly bean in the middle, don't think I've ever seen that before!
