Here’s how we did it.
Ingredients, milk and white chocolate, (cake covering chocolate is better workable), balloons, and goodies to fill.
Blow the balloons up ensuring you leave a long neck, if the knot is close to the inflated bit you can ensure the balloon is a perfect sphere whilst only inflating to the size you want.
Smear with butter/margarine to help the chocolate come off easy when the ballon is popped.
Melt your chocolate by placing into a bowl over hot water.
Let the melted chocolate cool a little and SLOWLY dip your balloons into the chocolate to get a good covering, (if you plunge the balloon into very hot chocolate it will explode!!) …put into the fridge to harden… REPEAT THIS PROCESS TO GIVE YOUR PUDDING A GOOD STURDY THICKNESS.
Place your pudding shells into the fridge to set.
Melt your white chocolate in a bowl over hot water, leave to cool for 5 minutes at room temperature.
Spoon your white chocolate onto the top of the milk chocolate, be careful not to play with it too much as this will cause the milk chocolate to seep through giving a marbled effect.
Melt some more milk chocolate for your puddings base, leave the chocolate to thicken up in the bowl before pouring a disc shape big enough to fit under your pudding onto a baking sheet. I found that I could guess roughly the size I needed by placing the chocolate covered balloon into a bowl and then drawing around the bowl onto the baking sheet.
Place your discs and puddings into the fridge to harden.
Once set carefully peel your balloon from the sides of the chocolate DO NOT REMOVE THE BALLOON. Once you have gently peeled away from the sides you can pop your balloon and remove.
Trim the sides of your pudding to make it a nice level to put on the base. Using cake covering chocolate make this easier to do.
Finally melt a little more chocolate to use as a glue to attach the base to the pudding…DON’T FORGET TO FILL WITH GOODIES BEFORE SEALING.
A couple of spots of melted chocolate is ideal to glue your berries on, I used ready roll icing with a few drops of food colouring but it would be easier to use smarties.
I added a fake leaf to finish, and they are ready to be bashed open on Xmas Eve
