These edible Fruit Loops Bowls are made with melted chocolate and coated with cereal for a colorful serving presentation. Use them to hold cereal, nuts, ice cream and more!
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.

- Gently press Fruit Loops into the melted chocolate (don’t push hard) all around according to the video.
- Freeze for at least one hour.
- Carefully pop the balloon with a knife or cake tester. Remove popped balloon.
- Set each bowl on a small plate. Inspect for any holes or thin areas, and brush extra melted chocolate onto them to cover.

- For the best results, use a high-quality baking chocolate such as Baker's, Ghirardelli, Valrhona or similar. Do not use chocolate chips, which are brittle and can cause the bowl to shatter.
