Chocolate Cups


Srivalli threw a googly towards us during this month long marathon with the final theme related to "Crafting / Carving kind of Stuff", challenging us to be creative. I haven't got even a single cell that can claim to be creative and so obviously was going crazy over this theme. Soon I was relieved to notice that some other marathoners were also sailing in the same boat. Valli, as usual pulled us all out of our misery by mentioning that we can go with our own themes if we could not come up with any interesting ideas with the given theme. I haven't prepared anything for this particular week but have decided to stick to recipes as this is a food blog. 
I am going with kid-centric recipes (probably :)) and these cute, edible cups made with chocolate is going to be my Day 1 post of this week's marathon. It is pretty simple to prepare these cups and can be made ahead. They can be used as delicious, edible cups to serve cut fruit, ice creams or any similar kind of desserts. They can be a fun part of any parties, especially the kid-centric ones. 

What you would need:
Semi sweet chocolate chips
Small silver foil paper baking cups
(For about 1/2 cup of chocolate chips, you would get around 5 cups.)


Method:
* Place the chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl and melt them, passing at 30 seconds intervals. Or place chocolate chips in a heatproof bowl and set over a pot of simmering water. Stir until chocolate melts. Remove from heat.
* With the back of a teaspoon / spatula, coat the sides and bottom of the baking cups with chocolate. Put the cups in muffin pan or small cups.
* Place them in a refrigerator and chill until the shells harden.
* Tear away the foil once the shells are hardened. The cups would be ready to serve.
