Melting Chocolate Ball Dessert

Look at this amazing dessert. I’ve tried cakes where you break the chocolate layer to get to the hidden cake, but pouring hot sauce over is spectacular!

Once you have perfected the chocolate ball, you could hide anything inside.

Update 16 Feb 2015: Sorry that I have taken so long to locate some information on this spectacular dessert. Hope this helps.

The following is from Ann Reardon who has a range of “how to” videos https://www.youtube.com/user/howtocookthat. The videos seem straight forward and easy to understand and there are basics for the beginner, such as tempering chocolate, etc. You WILL need to know how to temper chocolate to have success with these works of chocolate art.

I haven’t located an actual recipe for the dessert shown above but, with a little imagination, I’m sure you will be able to create something amazing with the help of these instructions. If you want to create the large form you might have to get creative or buy a larger mould. You could get a similar, if a little less spectacular effect by forming a half sphere using an upturned bowl shape or even a balloon. The possibilities are endless!

Here’s Ann Reardon’s version of a chocolate ball bombe:

Here’s Ann Reardon’s chocolate spheres with holes. Very decorative for many desserts that you might imagine.

Happy Cooking … and Eating!!

    • Hi Daana,
      The original video was posted on youtube without a reference. I believe several restaurants do this dessert as a specialty. However, I’ve added some videos that show how to create the hollow balls. Only limited by your imagination from there on. Have fun and let us know how you get on.
