chocolate cups

Edible chocolate cups.......they are unbelievably simple and quick, but even better, they are impressive. You can make them for the family  or for a birthday party... they are perfect for any occasion. Fill them with your favorite ice cream or even pudding. A sweet treat that everyone is sure to enjoy.

I saw the chocolate cups here and immediatly asked hubby dear to buy white chocolate while comming back from office as I was having dark chocolate at home. And I'm very happy with the result.

Ingredients  (Makes 8 – 10 chocolate cups)
1 dark chocolate/regular bar or chips
1 white chocolate bar or chips
Paper or Aluminum muffin cups


Boil water in a saucepan. Place a vessel on top of the pan such that the vessel sits well. Pour in some white chocolate chips and stir until it melts. Now use a brush and apply a thick coating of white melted chocolate to the inside of the muffin cup in some random fashion. In the meanwhile, melt the regular chocolate. This could either be done in a microwave or the same method as white chocolate. Apply thick coating of this chocolate to the inside of the same muffin cup in which the white chocolate is applied. Place it in a muffin tray or some small vessel and refrigerate it for at least 2- 3 hours. After that, slowly peel off the muffin paper and your designer white and dark chocolate cups are ready.

Scoop some chocolate ice-cream, shave some more chocolate on top. You can also add a couple of chocolate wafer rolls for more chocolate.

I'm sending this recipe to Lets Celebrate Sweets - Chocolate! An Event Announcement  linking with Nivedita.

  1. Very Nice Vatsala. I have bookmarked this to make some for upcoming V-day.

    Yum! Yum! Yum!

  2. Vatsala,
    I am answering your question here. If you are looking to substitute egg whites in a recipe like angel food cake where in you beat the egg whites to stiff peaks and fold, there is not substitute for that. If a recipe calls for just an egg white, treat it like half an egg. Correctly converting would be 4 egg whites = 3 whole eggs. Use any substitute that you are comfortable with like flax seed or ener-G or applesauce. Let me know if you have any other questions.

  3. first time imhearing about edible cup cakes. Fancy it!

  4. Wow..that's pretty easy and would definitely create an impression. Best part is we can use them for presenting some other desserts as well.
