Pretty much the only downside to a homemade ice cream sundae is when it’s all been eaten, and you’re left with an empty bowl. Well, would you believe us if we said we had the solution? Introducing: these edible candy ice cream bowls that you can munch on as soon as the ice cream is eaten! Adorable, charming, and straight-up delicious – these candy bowls make for a unique party gimmick, or as a fancy way to add some extra flavor to your dinner plans.
Step 1: Inflate a new clean balloon, and tie it off. Step 2: Melt down the candy. Place a dot of melted candy onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. This dot will serve as a base for the candy bowl, in order to keep it in place. Make sure to leave some space between the dots allow room for the balloons.
Step 3: Dip the balloon into the melted candy. Swirl it around a bit to completely coat the bottom of the balloon, toss some sprinkles on there, then place the balloon, candy-side down, onto the baking sheet — right on the candy base we made earlier.
Step 4: Repeat process with other balloons until sheet is full. Get creative pairing different coloured sprinkles! Let the balloons cool for 1 hour.Step 5: Now comes the fun part – popping the balloons! Using a safety pin or needle, pop each balloon and remove from the candy bowl.
