Chocolate Caramel Peanut Bomb


I’ve seen a lot of chocolate desserts in my day, but none quite as implosive as this. This magical melting chocolate bombe is an implosion of gooey goodness. Basically, the dessert is a shell of chocolate candy with a delicious treat hidden inside.

Just set the loaded bomb on a plate, pour hot fudge or caramel over the top, and watch the shell melt away into a pile of ooey-gooey goodness. It’s part magic trick, part science experiment, and all parts fabulous holiday dessert idea. Bombs away!


400g (14.11 ounces) dark chocolate (you will have left over, use below) Check your chocolates ingredients if it contains cocoa butter it is real chocolate and must be tempered or will not hold its shape at room temperature. NOTE: If you want tempered chocolate then the easiest thing to do at home is to simply keep the chocolate in temper. You only need to temper chocolate if it is real chocolate. Candy melts and some other melts are not real chocolate and so do not require tempering.

135g (4.76 ounces) dark chocolate
