Enchanting edible chocolate cup is a seductive work of art. Very delicately handled chocolate cups are easy to make but only with practise and patience. I have been wanting to make another version of edible chocolate cups after my Tulip Bowls and Chocolate Nests. Resulted in making two different methods now.

The later, seems to be larger in size perfect for a family of four to indulge together:) Don't miss to read the essential notes and tips to create these edible cups.
The two secret ingredients used in this recipe are the hazelnut flavored coffee (you will go nuts with its aroma) and plant based protein powder (Vega) for an overall flavor and quality. By all means, this is an easy sneek for my kids to take in some protein with the combination of high quality Ghirardelli mini chocolate chips, naturals organic cocoa powder and cornstarch for its texture. I have replaced the regular sugar with brown sugar for a guilt free taste sensational indulgence.
Working with white chocolate is quite challenging, I almost gave up as I couldn't get the right consistency during tempering. In the last minute it just struck me from my previous experience to add a teaspoon of coconut oil and instantly the chocolate melted to the right texture I was looking for.

Will add all the tips below to make your life easy creating these homemade edible cups.
