Are you looking for a sweet treat to make your Valentine this year? Look no further because Paula has crafted up the perfect little bowl of love! This quick and easy project will dazzle your kids with it’s “magic” or be the perfect surprise sweet ending to a romantic meal. These whimsical chocolate bowls can hold ice cream, berries and cream, pudding, candies, anything that you or your sweet heart desires!
1. First get your set up ready, line a sheet tray with parchment paper or wax paper. Blow up your balloons, being careful not to blow them up too big, since the tops of them will ultimately be the size of your bowls. It’s wise to use smaller thicker balloons so you can get more bowls out of your batch of chocolate. We used balloons we purchased at the local grocery store.
Add half your chocolate to a bowl set over simmering water, making sure the bottom doesn’t touch the water or it will seize up, and stir until it’s completely melted. Remove from the heat, add the remaining chocolate bit by bit, and stir until all the chocolate is smooth and melted. This step will help to temper the chocolate, which makes the chocolate firm up and give it snap. Let the chocolate cool for 8-10 minutes, you don’t want the chocolate so hot that the balloons pop!
Dear, Paula Deen

Paula, I used to watch your show on Food Network a lot when I still had the TV and cable many year ago. You weren't even that big a star back then. I always love watching you cook on Youtube after I ditched my TV and cable and read your recipes on Food Network Magazines. I hope one day you can return to Food Network and the Food Network Magazine. I stop buying the magazine since you were gone.
