Bakers Crack Open Giant Chocolate Geodes They Spent 6 Months Creating
culinary Institute of America students Alex Yeatts and Abby Lee Wilcox have taken Instagram by storm with their incredibly innovative chocolate geodes. The giant treats combine the excitement of opening an Easter egg with the nostalgia of munching on rock candy.
Details are scarce on how the duo went about creating the giant sugar rocks, some of which have the distinct hue of purple amethyst. The calorie count is also elusive, but we can only imagine it equates to the years these things take to form in real life.
Six months in the making, these chocolate covered, rock sugar filled candies look like amethysts when cracked opened. It’s not clear just how the duo created the geology-inspired desserts, but we’re all waiting to hear just how much sugar was involved.
Their final project couldn’t have come at a better time. Geodes are definitely trending, with everything from cakes to hair color to hotel design taking inspiration from these geological wonders.
