Valentine's Day is very soon and if you are planning to cook a nice meal for your plus one, I am here to level up your dessert game. This quick tutorial will show you how to make a chocolate dessert cup, which can be filled with your favourite ice cream or chocolate mousse.
All you need is 150 grams of chocolate (any kind) cut into small pieces in a microwave-safe bowl, a spatula for stirring, a tray lined with wax or parchment paper, and a few small balloons.
The first step is to temper your chocolate. The easiest way at any skill level is to use your microwave; add 120 grams of chocolate in the bowl and microwave for 20 seconds. Stir the chocolate and continue to microwave for 20 seconds at a time, stirring in between, until the chocolate is smooth and shiny. Add the remaining chocolate and stir until smooth.
Next, follow this tutorial with Anna Olson on how to create the chocolate cup.
