- 6 oz. ghirardelli 60% cacao bar, melted
- 4 small balloons
- 1 pint blackberries
- 1 pint raspberries
- 1 pint blueberries
- 1 pint strawberries, quartered

For Chocolate Bowls:
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Blow up 4 small balloons. Set aside.
- Add cacoa bar to a small glass bowl, melt chocolate in 30 second increments until smooth. Let cool slightly, for 1-2 minutes.
- Add a tablespoon of chocolate on parchment paper, and spread out into a small circle (about an 1″ round).
- Dunk the balloon in the melted chocolate and swirl around till you’re able to create a bowl and place on the chocolate circle you made on the parchment paper.
- Repeat the process three more times.
- Let balloons rest for 10 minutes, or until chocolate hardens.
- Then, carefully, using scissors cut a small slit in the top of the balloon to let the air out. What you have left are small chocolate bowls.
For the Mixed Berries:
- To a large bowl add blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries. Gently toss to combine.
- Set aside.
For the Coconut Whipped Cream:
- Add the cream from the can of coconut milk (just the top part, not the clear liquid part on the bottom) to a small bowl along with vanilla bean paste, and maple syrup. Using a hand mixer, blend until soft peaks form.
- To each chocolate bowl add mixed berries and top with coconut whipped cream.
- Optional: drizzle with melted chocolate and garnish with fresh mint
