SO cute!!! But, please oh please....where did you find the red cherry chocolate chips to make these bowls? I have never even heard of them!!

Cooking Creation

These turned out beautifully. I have never heard of cherry chocolate chips before!!!!

Karriann Graf

These bowls look darling! Cherry Chocolate Chips definitely sound delicious! Happy Baking!

Cookbook Queen

Love these!! I've eved those bowls on Bakerella more than once but still haven't attempted them!!

You are one of the most creative people I know. Such a cool dessert idea.

Oooh, these are so cute!


What a great idea - such a creative treat. My kids love the cherry dipped cones from DQ so I'm sure they'd love this!

Sylvie @ Gourmande in the Kitchen

Those little bowls are adorable, perfect for the 4th of July. I like any dessert that comes in it's own edible container!

Wait? There's such a thing as a cherry dip cone at DQ? Looks like I know where I'm heading this afternoon!

And these are just plain adorable! What a brilliant idea!

oh my goodness. I didn't even realize those bowls were edible when I saw the first photo. I was like, red white and blue, is she counting the bowl as the red? then I realized they were chocolate and I almost diet. I love these! you did such a good job!


Perfect dessert for the 4th!




You are not alone, I adore Bakerella too! :)


Oh my goodness, they look amazing and I'm so excited to make these for a treat day!!!

Katrina @ In Katrina's Kitchen

Yay! I'm in love!! I've seen the chocolate bowls around - but NOTHING as cute as this!! *mwah!*


Such a cute and colourful dessert. Love the bowls! Your tip for bursting the balloons is a great one.

Jamie | My Baking Addiction

How incredibly perfect for the 4th. Love these.

Mary C.

My daugther and I want to make these for a snack for a Keeper's of the Home group we are involved in, but have no idea where to find/buy the cherry chocolate chips!! Where did you find yours Amanda? Thanks :)

Amanda Rettke

I got the cherry chocolate chips at Walmart. This is what they look like...http://www.amazon.com/Log-House-Flavored-10-Ounce-Packages/dp/B000V9FX8OI think you can also order themdirectlyfrom the manufacturer! :)

Georgia Pellegrini

You're so clever. This looks like a very festive but also simple idea for the 4th... some of the other desserts out there are over my head!

Lynne @ 365 Days of baking

Great job, Amanda! And I love the fact that the dish doesn't have to be washed!! Less cleanup - Yippee!!!

Jen @ My Kitchen Addiction

These look great... yum!

Ellen Fitz

So cute! Like others, I had never heard of cherry chips so I just Googled "cherry baking chips" and I see there are lots of resources for them, including King Arthur Flour. The trick is to query on "baking" chips not "chocolate" chips. Thanks for another inspirational post.

Lucy Lean

Very patriotic!


that looks delicious!

Taylor Kee

this looks scrumptious!!! your pictures make this look way too good!!!!


Cherry chocolate chips??? Now why don't I ever see anything like this in my market?
Such an adorable idea for 4th of July, too! I'm saving the link and hoping I will find those chips somewhere.....

Linda McDearis

Just an unrelated note to thank you for posting the recipes for the thin mint cake and your homemade fondant. I combined the two for a beautiful baby shower cake this weekend and it turned out fabulous! Thank you!


I think this is one I can make :)


Lovely. And great tip about the tape. If I ever decide to try these again -- http://www.flickr.com/photos/nowwerecookiejenny/5716270707/in/photostream -- I am definitely using tape.

Amanda Rettke

Oh Jenny!!! I can soooo relate! And I cant help but chuckle ... I am finding red bits of chocolate all over... something new everyday! I hope the tip works for you... I have used it dozens of times and its never failed me. :)

Carsedra - Sweet Tooth Desserts

Saw these on twitter and had to come here so I can really post. These look very yummy and to think these are edible bowls. Awesome!! And I am totally with you on bakerella's site, like your site I can sit there for hours going through her site and looking at all the wonderful things you all make!! :-)


Edible everything here?! Love this Amanda & how fun for parties any time of year. You can just mix up the colors to suit the season.


Hmmm - delicious and perfect for the holiday weekend. Love these!


totally awesome!


Wow I love those bowls - I didn't even know cherry chocolate chips were a thing!


you mean I can eat this bowl? what a wonderful way to eat "green". no waste, no trash! this is the most adorable thing I have ever seen. I may have to do this for the 4th, fill them ice cream and make a blueberry sauce? oh my - you have just added so much stuff to my already filled week of things to do. you seem to have this effect on me. xx


The way to prevent the bowl from cracking when removing the balloon, is to not pop it...use scissors and make a small cut, way up below the knot...the air will release slowly.

What a beautiful dessert! Your photos look just great and I am definitely intrigued! Loved your collection of recipes and everything about this blog. Do visit my curry blog at http://cosmopolitancurrymania.blogspot.com

I can't wait to wow my weekend guests with these! Thanks so much!


These are a super-fun idea. What about people who live in hot climates? Should these primarily be served indoors? Or would they resist melting long enough not to be TOTALLY messy?


These are absolutely adorable!!! My mind is spinning with all the ideas I have using these - great tip about the tape, that is not something I would have thought of!!


My friend told me to come check these out and they are awesome and fun :)


What a clever idea to use the cherry chocolate chips(I didn't even know there was such a thing:))! What a beautiful, tasty and fun dessert~to be able to eat the bowl! Have a fabulous 4th of July, Amanda!

Allison @ Alli 'n Son

Yes please! I love that it's no-bake, perfect for the hot holiday weekend ahead.

I'd love to have you share this recipe on Sweet Tooth Friday. I hope to see you there. http://alli-n-son.com/2011/06/30/4th-july-dessert-lemon-bars/

Something Swanky

This looks so delicious! I'd love for you to stop by and link up to my sweet treats party this weekend! It runs through Sunday night. Hope to see you there-- bring dessert!


since i have no problem eating with my hands, this would mean absolutely no dishes to wash. eeeeeegg-cellent. :)

Lydia Grace

The plate is eatable as well right?
At first I was sure this is sushi, but this thing just looks excellent.
You keep teaching me new methods on how to cook, and it is just amazing, thank you very much for this.
