A year ago... I hosted book club at my house.
It was near valentines... I made romantic heart shaped reminder notes, chose a lovey story (which I highly recommend) and had delectable brownie bites in a variety of flavors.
Like 2 people came.
Not that its a popularity contest, but come. I gave it my all.
So.. this year I chose a murder mystery.
(Emily's pick) and my reminder was a crisp 4"x5.5" white sheet straight out of the printer. No nonsense.
But, I couldn't resist... I still HAD to make a yummy treat. And I discovered chocolate bowls are no easy feat. -yep I rhymed:)
So after spending over an hour and making 30 chocolate covered balloons, I ended up with a finished product count of 10. Yes a third of my efforts. Bless little Stephanie's Kitchen who made 100 for some RS something. She must have gotten it down to an exact science.(or else spoke a few choice words before she completed #100)
Here's my finished product topped with gooey chocolate cake, simple vanilla bean ice cream and hot fudge.
My little girlies said it was worth the effort.
So did my book club friends :) And I'd even make them again. Minus the balloon popping and chocolate being strewn ALL over my kitchen.
