A friend of my tipped me off to this and it’s absolutely incredible! Students, Abby Wilcox and Alex Yeatts, of the Culinary Institute of America created gigantic chocolate sugar geodes with coloured sugar crystals, or rock candy inside.
I definitely won’t be attempting this as it took them 5 – 6 months of diligent work for this to happen. But it is really amazing that they wanted to attempt this, followed through with the experiment not sure how it would turn out, and the results are truly spectacular.
I know the video starts off by giving all of the credits to Yeatts, but in the comments here, one is informed that it was a project which was conceived of and executed equally by both Wilcox and Yeatts; just so you are aware of the apparent discrepancy between my little write-up and that of the video.
