What You'll Need

  • 1 1/4 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable shortening
  • 6 small round balloons (see Note)
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 cup fresh raspberries

What to Do


  1. Line a baking sheet with wax paper.
  2. In a medium saucepan, melt chocolate and shortening over low heat 4 to 5 minutes, stirring just until chocolate melts and mixture is smooth. Allow to cool to point where chocolate is not hot enough to pop a balloon, but is still pourable.
  3. Inflate balloons to about size of an orange; tie knots to seal. Starting halfway from knotted end, spoon chocolate over outside of balloons, completely covering outside bottom half of each. Allow excess chocolate to drip off bottom of balloons and place them on lined baking sheet
  4. Chill 25 to 30 minutes, until chocolate is firm. Carefully pop balloons and gently remove them from chocolate cups. Chill cups until ready to fill. 

To Make Rasberry Cream:

  1. In a medium bowl, beat heavy cream, vanilla, and confectioners' sugar until stiff peaks form. 
  2. Stir in raspberries, then spoon into chocolate cups. Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.
