Can I Use a Balloon for the Chocolate Showstopper?

In summary, the Chocolate Showstopper is a versatile tool for creating a variety of chocolate desserts. It can be used to make chocolate bowls, shapes, and decorations for cakes and cupcakes. The product is dishwasher safe, but hand washing is recommended for longevity. High-quality chocolate, such as couverture, works best with the Showstopper. To clean, let leftover chocolate harden and wash with warm soapy water. The Showstopper can also be used for non-chocolate desserts, but be sure to clean it thoroughly between uses.

Hi there!
I was going thru the Consultants Corner information since I really haven't had a chance to.
The Showstoppers are really neat!
But I found myself asking a very very odd question for the Chocolate bowl.
I make canndy alot and thought it would be great to try.
But a balloon? do you wash it first? does it leave an aftertaste? I hate blowing up balloons because they have a funny taste.

Just wondering!!

I didn't noticeI've actually tried this before and I didn't notice a funny after taste at all. I didn't eat the whole bowl, but I did eat some of it and I did not notice a funny taste. I think the taste you get from blowing them up may be from the inside? I'm not too sure. Try it out and see! :D
 
I've never washed my balloons, but who's to say you can't. I'd just rinse them after blowing them up, then make sure they are GOOD and DRY before dipping. Water will cause the chocolate to curdle.

Also, I've posted on another thread - but be careful when dipping. If the balloon is under too much pressure or if the chocolate is too hot, you will have a chocolate covered kitchen instead of a chocolate covered balloon.
