  • 16 ounces melted and tempered pure white chocolate or melted Candy Melts
  • 4 ounces pure white chocolate colored using red candy coloring or Red Candy Melts
  1. Pour white chocolate into a bowl so that the chocolate is about 3 inches deep.
  2. Pour the red chocolate into a disposable pastry bag or zip top bag.
  3. Cut the tip off the bag.
  4. Pipe 5 to 7 lines of red chocolate over the top surface of the white chocolate.
  5. Dip one balloon into the bowl of chocolate to cover about 2/3rd's of the balloon.
  6. Lift the balloon out of the chocolate and allow the excess chocolate to drip off.
  7. Set the balloon on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  8. Repeat by piping the same number of red stripes over the bowl of white chocolate.
  9. Dip another balloon.
  10. Repeat.
  11. If using pure white chocolate, refrigerate the balloons until the chocolate sets.
  12. If using Candy Melts, place the balloons in the freezer for about 3 minutes.
  13. Remove and let sit for one minute.
  14. Then cut a small hole near the knot on the balloon to allow the air to escape.
  15. Tug and pull the balloons out of the chocolate cups.
  16. Fill with White Chocolate Peppermint Mousse, ice cream, pudding, candy or nuts.
