Show N' Fail!
Today I wanted to show a "Show and Fail". Yes, I do many projects that more often than I'd like to admit, fail. This past Monday, Abby wanted to do the family night treat. Family Home Evening is a special night (usually on Mondays) that families set aside each week, in the Mormon church, to have a spiritual lesson, or fun activity, or service project, etc.
Anyway, Abby and I saw these really cool chocolate bowls on pinterest a few weeks ago and thought we would try them. So I got some chocolate at the store and got some balloons and looked on pinterest at the board, I pinned it on, for the tutorial. Well, it was just pictures, no instructions. So I proceeded to melt the chocolate in the microwave and for some reason it started melting but then getting hard. So I put it in a make-shift double boiler. (A bowl on top of a pot of boiling water) That seemed to melt it again but it still was not getting to the consistency that I wanted so I added some evaporated milk. That seemed to give the consistency that I wanted.
So after I blew up the balloons to the size that I wanted the bowls to be, I wiped them down with disinfecting wipes, then I put a spoonful of chocolate on a cookie sheet and dipped the balloons in the chocolate and set them on their own chocolate mound on the cookie sheet.
|Mine looked like this, but when I pressed against chocolate it was soft.|
|This is what they were supposed to look like|
Sorry but when I went to post my pictures, I could not find them. I'm thinking that maybe I deleted them too early thinking that I already had uploaded them to my computer. Darn!
Anyway, when I try this again, and it works, I will for sure write about it and make sure I have the photos of it on my computer!
Have a wonderful weekend! See you next week!
