Step 1: Supplies
-Vanilla instant pudding mix
-Green (or whatever color you want your potion to be) food coloring
-Wax paper or a silicon baking sheet
Step 2: The Balloons
Step 3: Melting and Dipping
If you're melting it in the microwave, just keep zapping your bowl of candy until it has melted to a smooth consistency. Make sure you use a big enough bowl that you will be able to dip balloons in.
When the candy is melted just right, take a spoonful of it and place it on the cookie sheet with either the wax paper or silicon baking sheet; this will become the base of the cauldron so it stands on its own. Carefully dip the balloon in the candy, trying to cover the bottom half of it as evenly as you can. Place the dipped balloon on the chocolate you spooned onto the sheet. Keep doing these steps until all your balloons have been dipped.
CAUTION: Balloons may explode if they get too hot! This happened to me and black candy went everywhere.
Set them aside to set. If you want this to happen a little quicker, place the sheet in the fridge.
Step 4: The Handles
ANOTHER CAUTION: I would not suggest following my lead on using your bare fingers. The candy started to really burn after a while. Use gloves if they are available to you.
Allow the candied handles to set.
Step 5: The Pudding
Step 6: Putting It All Together
When the balloon is all peeled away, just add a few big spoonfuls of pudding and you're set! Enjoy!
(My cauldrons aren't the best because of the twenty things I was trying to accomplish that day and weaving in and out of the activities. Surely with practice they will get better. I have high hopes for anyone who tries this though.)
