Have you seen the episode of the IT Crowd where Moss is eating a bowl of Smartie Cereal (Season 1 episode 6)? The dialogue goes like this:
Jen: OK. Moss, what did you have for breakfast this morning?
Moss: Smartie cereal.
Jen: Oh my God. I didn't even know Smarties made a cereal.
Moss: They don't. It's just Smarties in a bowl with milk.
We have been talking about how awesome it would be to have a bowl of Smartie Cereal ever since this episode aired, so we decided it was time to give it a whirl.
We figured that since we were going to be eating chocolate for breakfast we might as well really go to town, so we made chocolate bowls the night before to put our Smartie Cereal in!
To make the chocolate bowls, I melted up some chocolate. Then I spooned a little onto a piece of aluminium foil (this forms the base of the bowl):
Then I dipped a balloon into the chocolate:
And then sat the balloon on top of the chocolate on the aluminium foil:
Once the chocolate set, we popped the balloons and peeled them off the chocolate and even though they were a little rough around the edges, they served their purpose well:
With the chocolate bowls ready to go, we filled them up with Smarties and milk at around 8.30am on Sunday morning (keen, hey!). I heated my milk up, which made the middles of the Smarties and my chocolate bowl melt - it was divine!
My brother (who's bowl was made using a water bomb balloon) decided to have a moat of Smarties:
So what was the verdict? Was it at all as good as we'd hoped? HELL YES! Although it was very, very sickly lol!
