Salted Caramel Ice Cream Bowls Recipe

Makes 2
15 caramel candies, unwrapped
½ tsp. salt
Chocolate sprinkles (optional)
Special equipment: Two clean balloons, blown up

1. In a medium bowl, microwave the caramel candies in 15 second intervals, stirring in between, until melted. Stir in the salt. In another medium bowl, add chocolate sprinkles, if using.

2. Take the blown-up balloons and dip them, top side down, in the caramel, then into the chocolate sprinkles. Place top side up in a separate bowl to dry and repeat with second balloon. Once cooled, carefully pop the balloons and remove them from the caramel. Place a scoop of your favorite ice cream inside the bowls and serve!
