Chocolate cups

I melted some dark chocolate and then painted it onto cupcake papers making a chocolate cup...I suppose ice cream would be great in there, but was wondering, what would you fill these yummy cups with? Fruit, custard? I want to try something the kids will go woo hoo at...Oh yes, it was messy doing this and boy did I goof here and there, but they turned out nice..The biggest goof!!! Stopped at the store on our way home today..guess what I tripped over? Yup already made dark chocolate dessert cups!!! Way to go Ma...

How about making a mixture of cream cheese and cherry pie filling? Put that in the cups, top with whipped cream and a cherry.

Did you use foil muffin "papers" or the paper ones?

Ice cream, egg nog, peanut butter or raspberries. For the ice cream or egg nog, fill the cups & pop em in the freezer to firm up.

Found a recipe for chocolate shopping bags. Will see if I can locate it again.

I saw a recipe for an egg nog type custard you cook cool then put it in the cups, but I think I'd like the chocolate cup nice and cold as well..Raspberries and some vanilla ice cream mixed together? Hummm just might do it. Thanks Amy

Chocolate or vanilla pudding would be my choice if
I didn't have any ice cream sitting around.

Hey, here's another idea. Still with the cream cheese base, stir in some peanut butter. Make a Reese's kind of thing. Serve topped with whipped cream flavored with cocoa, chocolate liqueur and chopped peanuts.

This isn't quite the one I was looking for, but wanted to share the pic.

A Bag That's Good Enough to Eat

Chocolate Bag Recipe - washingtonpost.com

FN has em filled w white chocolate mousse. A truffle, chocolate covered strawberry (see m avatar, lol) or mascarpone & choc chips might be yummy too.
