5. Place the dipped end of the balloon on the parchment paper. Repeat with remaining balloons.
6. Placebaking sheet with balloonsin refrigerator to set (about 30 minutes).
7. Release air from balloons: Pinch the balloon just under the knot and cut a small hole in the surface between fingers and knot. Very gradually release the air. Be careful not to release the air too quickly or the bowls may break. Carefully peel the deflated balloons from the chocolate bowls. Patch any holes with the remaining chocolate if needed.
8. Return the bowls to the refrigerator.

13. Chill until set (at least 2 hours).
14. Fill each bowl with approximately 4 tbsp of mousse before serving. Garnish with fresh fruit if desired. Enjoy!
