Eeeeeeee, my roommates make me cook and that is AWESOME. One of wanted to make something for the suite for Valentine's Day. At first I was at lost, thinking of maybe just making cookies or something. But then I remembered seeing these adorable little chocolate cups full of fruit at a grocery store, and reading how to make the cups somewhere online. It seemed really easy so we made some cups and filled them with red and pink fruit (apples, peaches, strawberries, and raspberries). They turned out awesome and were soooo good. Maybe my new favorite desert!

Here's how to make them, they're so super easy:

Blow up a balloon to about 2 to 3 inches in diameter. You want it to be as round as possible - if it's sort of pear shaped, get a different one. Tie it, and rinse it under warm water. Dry it off.

Spoon a little circle of melted candy melts onto a sheet of wax paper. Dip your balloon into a deep bowl of melted candy melts. (We double-dipped ours in pink vanilla, then milk chocolate melts) Set the dipped balloon onto the base that you made on the wax paper, being careful to set it as upright as possible. If it's leaning over to one side, the bowl will probably break during the last step.

Let the balloon sit until the candy is completely dry. Pop the balloon. It will naturally peel back from the sides of the bowl as it deflates, so don't try to pull it out right away. If your bowl is too big or lopsided, it'll break.

Fill with anything you want, and happily eat!
