Bombes Away!

I kind of can’t believe that this dessert exists. I saw the recipe on Sprinkle Bakes recently and felt an immediate urge to make it. I’m pretty sure my jaw actually dropped when I saw her pictures. I don’t always follow online recipes exactly, but I did with this one and the proportions were perfect. Despite being layers and layers of chocolate and sugar, it’s actually not overwhelmingly sweet. The mouse and ganache balance the sweetness of the cookie dough and the brownie adds some chew and a hint of saltiness. Really good combos!

I obviously decorated mine a little differently and used a taller bowl. I love her smooth, elegant dessert, but thought the layers of chocolate lava looked pretty cool too, so I went with it. I also think it’s pretty funny that it looks like a giant hunk of cookie dough underneath some chocolate before you cut it open. I had a lot of fun making this thing. Each step of the assembly just made me laugh. Like really, I’m filling a cookie dough bowl with chocolate mouse and that still isn’t enough!? We all joked that it felt like the SNL Taco Town commercial with the taco wrapped in a pizza, wrapped in a pancake…

      Yes, go make it now! It’s really, really good. Extra tip – it chills in the fridge, but I think it tastes best after it sits out at room temperature for a while! Enjoy and let me know how it goes!
