Before you get started you will need a few things to make your dessert cups a possibility. First, you need a silicon mold. I bought mine on amazon here.
Second, you need Fruity Pebbles. I love using fruit pebbles because they are not only delicious and provide a fun crunch on the cup, but they are SO PRETTY in desserts!
Lastly, you need melting chocolate. The brand I use and works the best for a smooth chocolate finish in the cups is ChocoMaker. I’ve tried other brands in the past and they require a lot of work and in some cases oil to make it smooth for the cups, so go with this one.
Now that you are prepped, read below to see How to make Edible Dessert Cups to fill up with your hearts desire!

Instructions to make Edible Chocolate Cups
This idea is so quick and easy you barely need me! The first thing you need to do is melt down your chocolate smooth. Most advise to put in a microwave safe bowl for 30 seconds at a time, stirring, and re-setting until done. Do not cook your chocolate over 30 seconds at a time or you run the risk of burning it. The times will alter depending on how much you are melting. Stir between each 30 seconds till its runny and smooth.
Now pour your chocolate into your silicon mold, alternate chocolate and Fruity Pebbles. If you place your cereal in first, you will need to make sure you push down the chocolate to have it stick to the bits of cereal or it wont adhere. If you would prefer the tops be smooth, add chocolate FIRST, then Fruity Pebbles and alternate with chocolate until filled.
Now that your cups are filled, bang your mold on the ground to make sure there are no air bubbles, re-adding chocolate if needed till its full.
Put in freezer for 15-20 minutes.
Now you can fill up your edible cereal cups with anything you like, even making a fun mini cereal bowl itself! These look gorgeous on a dessert table and are easy and exciting for kids to grab and go.
