Cool!: Giant Chocolate Geodes With Edible Sugar Crystals Inside

March 30, 2017


This is a video of the chocolate geodes created by Culinary Institute of America student Alex Yeattes and his partner Abby. They start by making a hollow chocolate egg, then pouring concentrated sugar syrup inside, that, over the course of several months and lots of rotating and flipping the egg to ensure the entire interior is properly covered, forms geode crystal rock candy inside. Cool! I love geodes. But do you know what I love even more than geodes? "Dinosaur fossils?" No -- you -- I love you more. "I...I don't know what to say." Tell me you love me back. "But I don't." What if I cut off my ear? "No." What if I cut off your ear? "Definitely not." I can't hear you! "Jesus, did you just cut off both your ears?!" I thought you were lying.

Keep going for a worthwhile Instagram video of Alex cracking one open, as well as a longer video about the process.

Thanks to Stephanie B, who agrees Kinder Eggs should have been all over this.
