Chocolate Cup Tarts

Want to WOW your family this holiday? These chocolate desserts are easier than they look.

What you need:
  • Semi-sweet chocolate
  • Plain Greek yogurt
  • Cool whip
  • Powdered sugar
  • Fruit
  • Balloons!
That's right, balloons. 

1. Blow up balloons. The smaller the balloon the smaller the shell. I like to keep them small. Rinse balloons to remove any powder.
 2. Melt chocolate, dip and roll balloons in chocolate. The closer the chocolate gets to the "neck" of the balloon the harder it will be to peel later. The deeper you dip the balloon the more egg-like the shell will turn out.
 3. Set balloons on a plastic wrapped tray. After all balloons have been covered, place in fridge.

1. Combine about 28 ounces of yogurt and 3/4 of the container of cool whip. Wish you had a larger bowl.
2. After mixing, add powdered sugar an vanilla to taste. I used about 1/2 a cup sugar.
*These amounts led to a LOT of filling, I'd recommend using half as much.

1. After the chocolate has solidified, cut the balloons, and carefully peel out the balloon.

2. Put filling in a zip-loc bag and cut of the end. Fill cups.

3. Decorate. I chose pomegranate seeds and blueberries. Granola, chocolate, candy and other fruit works well too. 

BONUS: If you comment on a post besides this one I will make these for you and your family for the holidays! Best comment wins.
