  • 1 oz

  • 1/2 oz
    candy cane bits
  • 4-6 oz
    extra white chocolate in order to dip the last few bowls

How to Make Peppermint Bark Balloon Bowls


  1. Wash and dry balloons before starting.

    Blow up balloons to about the size of a small apple.

    Water balloons are the perfect size, but some are rather thin, so be careful because they can pop once coated in chocolate. I had one of my balloons pop. What a mess!
  2. I had never had that happen before, and wasn’t prepared for the mess a bursting balloon would cause. After I cleaned chocolate up off my walls, I got smart. I’d dip one balloon then set a large popcorn tin over top of it for one minute, in case it burst. Once the candy began to set, I knew it was alright to remove the container and dip another balloon. If one had popped the mess would have been contained.
  3. Now that you have your balloons ready, dip one into the white chocolate, remove and allow the excess to drip off. Roll into peppermint bits until well coated.

    I dipped my balloons rather high. If you want shorter bowls, then only dip a small amount of the balloon in white chocolate.
  4. Set the balloons on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Set the tray in the freezer for 2-3 minutes.

    To pop the balloons, it’s best to pull up on the tied balloon tip and cut a tiny hole. Allow some of the air to escape, then tug on the balloon and remove it from the chocolate.
  5. Once you have made all the Peppermint Bark Balloon Bowls you’d like and are ready to serve them, you can fill them with chocolate mousse or your favorite holiday treat.
