Break your chocolate into small pieces and put in a bowl over a pan of simmering water. Leave to melt then allow to cool for five minutes. Blow up your balloons so each is around 10cm wide. Don't blow them too big because it won't work. Tie with a knot when the size is reached. 

Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Holding the tied end of the balloon, dip it into the melted chocolate to create the bowl shape and stand it on the tray and hold the balloon for a few seconds so the chocolate pools around the base. Continue with the remaining balloons and chill for at least 30 minutes (it's advised to wait until set completely). 

When the chocolate has set, pop the balloons and carefully peel them away from the bowls, ensure you remove all of the rubber. Fill with ice cream scoops of Gookie Dough, top with sprinkles and a side of ice cream! 

There you have it. As easy as 1,2,3 and with only three ingredients, it's a dream come true! Pretty much everything you already have in the house and great for a low budget dessert or if you really don't want to leave the house. You don't need to display the balloons to really get the party started.
