Edible fruit loops bowls made with chocolate and cereal

A few months ago we made Fruity Pebbles Bowls and got requests for a Fruit Loops (er. Froot Loops!). This version includes chocolate to seal the bowl for use with ice cream or milk.

Use them for dessert, breakfast, brunch or beyond! Needless to say, they’re great for parties and lots of fun to make with kids. Don’t forget to eat the bowl…

How to Make Fruit Loops Bowls

To make them, here is what you’ll need:

  • Small 5-inch size balloons
  • Quality semi-sweet baking chocolate, i.e. Baker’s or Ghirardelli
  • Fruit Loops cereal

The technique for making them involves dipping inflated ballon into smoothly melted chocolate. Then press individual pieces of Fruit Loops into the chocolate and let it harden in ramekins on a baking sheet in the freezer.

An important tip is to use quality baking chocolate, which is extra smooth and creamy. Chocolate chips can be brittle and cause the bowls to fall apart when the balloon pops. It’s a good idea to brush extra melted chocolate onto any holes or thin areas to prevent leaks.
