Mother's Day: The Gift of Chocolate

Steal this idea for a Mom's Day dessert worthy of a queen:
Miniature balloons aid in making delicious chocolate bowls:

To make:

Melt one cup of chopped dark chocolate in microwave for 30 seconds on medium setting. Stir and reheat for approx. 30 additional seconds or until smooth.

**one cup of melted chocolate will make two chocolate bowls**

Blow up washed mini balloons and dip in the melted chocolate.  Place on parchment-lined sheet to harden (30 minutes).  Cut balloon, discard, and then fill bowl with chocolate mousse, ice cream or fresh berries.

Garnish with shaved or chopped chocolate.

What delicious dessert does your Mom love for Mother's Day?
