This Magical Melting Chocolate Bombe Is An Implosion Of Gooey Goodness

We've seen a lot of chocolate desserts in our day, but none quite as, ahem, implosive as this.

Behold: the chocolate caramel peanut bombe. This thing is a feat of engineering, science and most of all, deliciousness.

Basically, the dessert is a shell of chocolate candy with a delicious treat hidden inside (a giant Wonder Ball, if you will). This particular bombe recipe calls for chocolate-peanut creme, but we imagine you could put anything in there: doughnuts, cookies, ice cream, cherpumple -- whatever!

Just set the loaded bombe 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! Watch how to make this masterpiece in the video below:
