If you still have no idea what to prepare for your Valentine, then we got you covered! With just a few simple ingredients, you too will be able to dazzle your loved one with a romantic display that is 100% edible!

You will need:

7 ounces white chocolate, 7 ounces whipped cream, 2 egg whites, 1 dark chocolate bar, 1 small balloon, some bubble wrap and a few strawberries. That is it!

Blow up the balloon until it is the size you want. Tie it up securely and set it aside. Cut out a heart shape from the bubble wrap. This part is totally optional, but makes for a interesting decoration.

In a double boiler, melt the dark chocolate over low heat. Make sure the bowl on top does not touch the water in the bottom pan or it will seize the chocolate. Brush some of the melted chocolate over the bubble wrap, bubble side up and dip the balloon until it is covered halfway with the delicious stuff. Place a tablespoon of the melted chocolate on some parchment and put the chocolate covered balloon on top, to act as a foot for your bowl. Let them cool and set.

Put half of the whipping cream and the white chocolate over the double boiler and melt them thoroughly. Whip the rest of the cream until stiff peaks, as well as the two egg whites. Fold the cream in the white ganache first, then the meringue. Keep in fridge to chill for at least two hours.

When the time comes to serve the treat to your beloved, carefully remove the bubble wrap from the chocolate (not the other way around, to make sure you get it out whole) and remove the balloon by popping it close to the knot and carefully peel it off the cup. Fill it with the decadent mousse and decorate it with a few strawberries and your chocolate heart!

Happy Valentine's day!
