I would think you could. You can make chocolate cups with just about anything.

The package of balloons don't mention they can be used for making chocolate cups either

Do you mean chocolate cups like a peanutbutter cup? I saw on another thread today someone did a chocolate covered oreo in these, but they put them in a cupcake tin for stability I think.

There is a show that comes on tv down in Houston that is called Bake, Decorate, Celebrate and it has some really basic things it...anyhow one of the shows from last week about about making chocolate lined cups from these silicone cups and also from the giant cupcake pan and how you can fill them with what ever.

So the point I'm tryin to get at is that yes you can, but make sure you make several coats of the chocolate...coat, refrigerate, coat...I think you get the idea. Maybe two or three times. Hope it helps!

Ok... as soon as I saw your post I ran and grabbed my Wilton Cupcake Fun book. There is a detailed description in there of how to do this exact thing. I will try and type it out exactly as it is in the book!!

1. Place silicone baking cups on cookie sheet. Fill with 2 tablespoons melted candy. Brush candy up sides coating evenly to make candy shell. Refrigerate until firm.

2. Peel cup from candy, gently pushing shell from bottom.

3. Keep shell in cool, dry place until ready to fill and serve.

If you would like the photos from the description PM and I will get them to you!!

I do not believe that you need to grease the cups. At least these instructions didn't say to. Here are the illustrations for you. Hope they help!!
