What fun it is to not only eat your dessert, but now you can eat the cup it is served in!
Edible Chocolate Cups are so whimsical (wow, I never thought I would use that word!) and a fun way to serve your Chocolate Mousse or Ice Cream or Chia Seed Fruit Salad like I did this past Memorial Day Weekend!
They really are quite simple to make, however you will need a silicone mold for easy release.
To be honest after I made these, I preferred the more affordable Silicone Cupcake Liner over the silicone flexipan mold I used originally. (Yes I know the flexi-molds are outrageously expensive too!) (And yes, I cut mine! Gaaaaah!)
I decided I liked the fluted texture of the baking cups vs. the plain rounded bowl shape of the flex mold.
But of course it is your option to use whatever you like best.
There are lots of different shapes and size options in silicone molds available too.
I’m pretty sure I even saw one other youtuber making them out of a real teacup lined with plastic wrap!
To me it seemed a bit tedious to go to all that trouble; but on second thought if it’s all you have……..then it is quite genius!
The only other thing you need is some sprinkles or non-pariels for decoration and of course your chocolate choice.
In my hometown of Somerville New Jersey, there is a really awesome cake decorating supply shop called Candyland Crafts.
They will ship worldwide, so be sure to check them out for anything you may need especially the Merckens Chocolate and tons of chocolate molds!
They have chocolate in every color of the rainbow and more! So for those of you having trouble with Wilton candy Melts (like me) you may want to give the Merckens Brand a try.
And for those who are avid Chocolatiers you will surely be tempering couverture right!
Well, I hope you will try your hand at these edible chocolate dessert cups for your next fiesta!
You will see just how easy they are.
