Ingredients Nutrition

  • Black Hole Chocolate Disc
  • 1 cup lavender, chocolate melts (two shades of color)
  • edible gold glitter
  • fudge bundt cake (store-bought)
  • banana split ice cream (I used Ben and Jerry's, but you can use any flavor)
  • Meringue
  • 2 egg whites
  • 14 teaspoon salt
  • 18 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 12 teaspoon vanilla

Directions

  1. For the Black-Hole Chocolate Disc:
  2. In addition to the chocolate melts, you will need an airbrushing machine and edible colors, as well as parchment paper.
  3. Melt chocolate in two pots until completely liquid. Place a circle of parchment on a turn table and pour the darker shade first. Pour the remaining color on top in design of your choosing and use an offset, narrow spatula to create a galaxy design by making spiraled swiping motions from the inside out. Once done, allow to set in a cool room for one hour. Once the chocolate is set, remove from parchment sheet and rest on something with a hole in the center and using a hot blade, cut out a hole in the center. Smooth edges with your finger.
  4. Mix various galactic colors in an airbrush machine and paint your black hole. I made mine darkest on the outer edges and lightest near the center.
  5. For the Meringue:
  6. In a stand mixer, beat egg whites, salt and cream of tartar until soft peaks form. Drizzle in sugar and vanilla and beat until stiff peaks form.
  7. Cut off the top of the fudge bundt cake and scoop a layer of your chosen ice cream on top of the ring making sure to leave the hole in the middle. Coat with meringue and torch. Once done chill in freezer until ready to serve. just before serving place the chocolate black hole topper onto the frozen dessert. Serve.
