chocolate bag

I got the idea for this chocolate bag from The Divvies Bakery cookbook, which features kid-friendly dairy-, egg-, and nut-free recipes. For the “Brown” Chocolate Bag, all you need is a clean, unused coffee bean bag that’s lined with plastic and some melted chocolate. Paint the inside of the bag (I used a spoon), let the chocolate freeze for at least thirty minutes, and then carefully peel off the wrapper. Fill with ice cream, candy, fresh fruit, sorbet, or all of the above. Talk about easy. Or get Divvies’ kit, which comes with four bags for molds, and two bags of chocolate chips.

    Cute idea! would be fun for kids, but could be very elegant for an adult get together!

    Good point — my kids freaked out over it but filled with fresh berries or sorbet, it would absolutely be fun for adults. Or ice cream, actually — why do kids have all the fun?

    (Bonus: you make it ahead, which is nice when you have company.)
