Chocolate Cups


I have met a lot of people through my blog virtually.
And with some of them I have become really good friends
But one of the friends I have met through Facebook is Caroline Martis, she doesn't have a blog but she cook up a storm in her kitchen especially in baking.
I do hope once she will start blogging all her goodies she makes in her kitchen.
So one fine day she tagged few of us in FB with this particular link and there was this video of making chocolate cups.
I have been wanting to make chocolate cups for a while, but I was always lazy saying it took too much effort to make them untill I saw this video, it was so easy that I had to try it and as you can see below it is indeed easy, so a big thankyou to my Dear FB friend Caroline for sharing the link with me.

Iced Shapes
Dipp them into the chocolate
Keep them upside down.
Ready to use.
  
Actually there is no recipe for this.
What you have to do is fill a flexible pan  ( any design you like) with water the day before .
I filled it and then when the water was half frozen poked a stick inside each of the shape.
Next day you melt 200 gm chocolate or depend on how many cups you want to make, take the pan out from the freezer take a shaped ice cube , dip into the melted chocolate and keep on a rack upside down and after few minutes the chocolate gets hard and you can easily remove it from the ice shape.
Leave it too fully dry.
You can only do one case with one shaped ice. I tried to use second time but the chocolate didnt get sticked.
You also have to work fast, with the chocolate ,as after sometime with the left over chocolate i wanted to make it didnt work, don't know why, will tell you next time when I make this again if it was the same.
Soon I will post what I did with these chocolate case.

ok, this is something that I have to try out as I have been dying to make these cups, once I tried with silicone muffin pan, but it didn't work as the chocolate started breaking. Let me give this a try, thanks for the step by step pics.

Excellent and easy way to make chocolate cups... Looks so yum and crunchy...

That's an excellent idea. You can do the same with cup cake cover also. Use a brush to rub around the cup cake and then let it set and peel off the paper :)
