Okay, this is so easy and makes very impressive looking bowls. And they taste good, to boot. This is all you are going to need: 8 ounces chocolate chips and some five inch balloons. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler, or however you want (microwave, etc.). I recommend Ghiradelli semi-sweet chocolate chips, but that is just my preference. Put some wax paper on a cookie sheet and put four dollops of chocolate (about 1/2 teaspoon) on it (this will become the flat part of the bowl). Blow up four balloons and dip them in the chocolate, you can use a spoon to spread it on if you need to. Place one balloon on each dollop of chocolate and put the balloons in the fridge to allow the chocolate to harden. After it has hardened gently deflate the balloons (pinch the top and use scissors to cut a small hole) and peel out of the bowl. Fill with ice-cream, berries, or whatever sounds good.
