Ingredients for 25 people

3 cups melted milk chocolate

6 eggs

2/3 cups melted dark chocolate

Melted white chocolate

Mixed berries

Salt


Tools

2 large balloons

Kitchen twine

Electric mixer


Step 1/4

Blow up a large balloon. Wrap kitchen twine around the balloon to create a pumpkin shape. Dip the lower half of the balloon in melted milk chocolate. Repeat with a second balloon. Let set.

Step 2/4

Separate the whites from the yolks of the eggs. Mix the yolks with the melted dark chocolate and 1 cup of melted milk chocolate. Whisk the egg whites with a pinch of salt, then fold them into the first mixture. Pierce the chocolate-covered balloons so that only the chocolate bowls remain. Fill one chocolate bowl with the chocolate mousse and let chill.

Step 3/4

On a sheet of parchment paper, draw eyes with the melted white chocolate with a dot of milk chocolate to make the pupil. Let harden. Pour the rest of the melted milk chocolate on a sheet of plastic wrap and roll it into a tube. Fold the top of the tube to create the shape of a pumpkin stem. Chill.

Step 4/4

Place the berries and the chocolate eyes on top of the chocolate mousse. Top with the second chocolate bowl to create a pumpkin. Use melted milk chocolate to attach the stem. Use melted white chocolate to create a jack-o-lantern face.
