More like red, white, and deep, deep navy. Maybe even purple? Sorry Uncle Sam.
See, I saw these amazing chocolate edible bowls over on bakerella and I knew I wanted to try them. I seriously get lost on her site. The amount of creative and original and stunning desserts she creates just boggles my mind.
I sorta have a bakerella crush. But I am in good company. We all adore her right?
So I got this "brilliant" idea to make the bowls out of cherry chocolate chips. Only the chocolate never got as creamy and beautiful as bakerella's did and I just could not get them to be uniform and magnificent like hers.
I am not even going to try and give you a recipe or directions… I think bakerellas directions are wonderful and easy to follow.
Just wish I had.
Here's what I did do.
Made chocolate bowls. Oh, oh I have a little trick for you! When you go to pop the balloon, put a piece of tape on the balloon and then pierce the balloon through the tape. It will just deflate slowly instead of popping and causing your chocolate to break into a million pieces all over your kitchen! Not that I know from experience or anything.
Bake a white sheet cake. Chilled it. Cut it into one inch squares.
Opened can of blueberry pie filling. Put cake squares in chocolate bowls. Spooned filling over top.
What I can attest to is the taste. The subtle cherry chocolate (think cherry dip cone from DQ) combined with a silky rich white cake topped with a sugary sweet blueberry pie filling…
It. Was. Fantastic.
So unexpected… I had to let the flavors just dance on my tongue for a bit before really professing my love.
But then I did. Profess my love. To a dessert. Cause I have warped sensibilities ok?
Even if you don't make this for your Fourth of July celebrations, I highly recommend making it just to indulge in a new scrumptiously sweet flavor combination.
I hope you will be delighted with it as I was!
P.S. Totally going to try this with fresh blueberries next time. I might even make a blueberry simple syrup to drizzle over the top. I really dont think you can go wrong experimenting with this dessert. And I do hope you do!
