I really should just call these types of posts “My Pinterest Addiction: Edition-Food Bowls.” or “Edition: Cute Shoes” or “Edition: Wherever my brain leads me on this particular day.”
I sacrificed my time and spent it on Pinterest so you don’t have to. I know it’s a hard thing to search through Pinterest. Not wanting anyone to suffer I took on the task myself.
I’m loving these edible food bowls. How fun and earthy and homemade. I’m listing ideas for food bowls with some links to other blogs for recipes!
Chocolate Chip Cookie Bowls from Wilton look so good!
Watermelon Baskets-doesn’t it seem like everybody’s mom made these summery watermelon fruit filled baskets for picnics? Complete with handles carved into the rind.
Tulips-yep, tulips. Who knew organic, untreated tulip petals are edible!?! I did not. But here they are filled with a tiny scoop of ice cream.
Avocados are Jeremy’s go to for a quick breakfast or lunch. Avocados are a quick “leave ’em at the store” if you’re me. I wish I liked them. I really do. But I really don’t. However, if you do like them, these Stuffed Avocados look perfect.
You can rarely go wrong with a Brownie Bowl filled with ice cream!
Can you just picture a lovely beach breakfast and someone serves you this Cantalope bowl filled with breakfasty goodness? Or how about this Pineapple Smoothie Bowl that looks ridiculously amazing, as does this one filled with Pineapple Fried Rice. I found these Papaya Bowls that look so fresh and filling.
If you’ve never grilled fresh peaches in the summer time you’ve missed out. They are better than you’d expect. Topped with fresh vanilla ice cream, they make a perfect dessert.
Apples are great with the insides scooped out and ice cream placed inside or filled with a crumb filling and baked.
Ice Bowls–Why have I never thought of these? They are def going on the list for summer gatherings this year.
These Coconut Bowls are gorgeous!
These Grilled Burger Bowls look perfect for July 4th get togethers.
I used to feel so edgy ordering taco salads in the edible bowl from Friendlies back in the day. Who knew Tortilla Bowls could be made so easily at home?
Lettuce-We often use lettuce to wrap our tuna or egg salads or hamburgers. They would also be great with tacos, chicken salad, lunch meat and cheese sandwiches. You can also use Endive, Cabbage Leaves, Grape Leaves, Kale Leaves to wrap a “sandwich” in.
These edible Gingerbread Box and Mason Jars are on my list for Christmas this year. Consider it done. Like it happened yesterday.
Stuffed Peppers are a fave around The Parsonage. We use the same ingredients as our Stuffed Zucchini but replace the zucchini with fresh peppers.
And don’t forget those peanut butter filled celery with raisins on top for a quick snack.
Mushrooms make a cute little appetizer bowl. Check out our recipe for Mushroom Bites.
Spaghetti Squash becomes so normal around here during the summer that my kids beg to “not have to eat it anymore mom! Please!”
These biscuit bowls filled with chili look amazing for a quick supper.
Candy Bowls-These cute little candy bowls turn out like watermelons. Perfect for summer birthdays!
Sprinkle Bowls look like every little kids dream for a birthday ice cream party!
These Chocolate Cupcake Wrappers are awesome! I can’t wait to make these either.
These edible Microwave Parmesan Cheese Bowls look perfect for appetizers.
No Bake Cookie Bowls-simply make our recipe for No Bake Cookies. Set aside. In the mean time overturn a muffin tin, covering each muffin slot tightly with tin foil. When cookie batter is cool enough to touch, take a small handful and shape it over the muffin slots. Let cool and harden. When ready, fill with ice cream or pudding and serve.
Bread Bowls can be medium to large sized for soup or dips or small, using rolls, for individual portions of soup or dip. How about this bowl using sliced bread with breakfast baked inside? This one from Pillsbury using Frozen Bread Dough looks easy peasey. This braided Bread Basket looks amazing. Instead of making my own bread I think I might just use already prepared dough.
I found these Churro Bowls on Buzzfeed.
Maybe hand pies are the oldest form of edible bowls? Who knows, but our Rustic Fruit Pies will get the job done. You can also make mini pies using muffin tins or mason jar lids.
Sugar Cookie Bowls-simply make your favorite sugar cookie dough recipe. Grease a muffin tin (small or regular size) and place a ball of dough in each muffin slot. Form the dough to the muffin slot and bake at 350 degrees until blind baked. Let cool completely and fill with your favorite fillings.
Pumpkins/squash-We have served (and been served) pumpkin soup in little edible pumpkins for a festive touch. Squash would be great too as a hot or cold serving bowl.
Check out our recipe for Stuffed Zucchini!
Rice Krispie Treat Cups look delish!
Oreo Bowls!!!! What else is there to say?
And of course the ultimate edible bowl: the ice cream cone. Check out our recipe for Ice Cream Cones with fruit.
Chocolate bowls might be the quintessential everything bowl. And these bowls only require a balloon and some chocolate!
Bacon! A basket made of bacon?? Yep.
How about making your favorite Graham Cracker Crust and shaping it into tiny bowls inside a muffin tin? Fill it with pie filling, ice cream, cheese cake….
