The baby shower is right around the corner and you can't wait to announce your little girl or boy. We've got your dessert plans sorted to let everyone know whether you're having a Henry or a Henrietta.
12 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 doz. cupcakes
1 doz. water balloons
2 cups frosting
Melt chocolate chips over low heat or in the microwave, stirring frequently. Remove chocolate from heat and let rest at room temperature.
Fill water balloons with tepid water and tie off. Using a spatula, carefully spread warm chocolate over the round end of the balloon. The coating should be thick and even. Set the balloons in a muffin tin and allow chocolate to harden at room temperature for about an hour.
Frost the cupcakes generously. With your fingertips, separate the chocolate 'bowl' from the balloon. Fill with pink or blue candies, center the cupcake over it, and flip the whole thing over.
Voíla! The color is hidden inside until it's time to break them open.
