Melting White Chocolate Ball: A Dessert That's Both a Treat and a Show!

Hello, uRBAN wHIP enthusiasts!

Today, we're diving into a dessert that's as fun to make as it is to eat – the Melting White Chocolate Ball! It's a show-stopper, perfect for impressing guests or treating yourself to something extra special. Let’s get melting!


  • ¾ cup white chocolate chips (for that creamy goodness)
  • 1 ½ cups water (the base of our sauce)
  • 1 cup cocoa powder (because chocolate is always a good idea)
  • ¾ cup sugar (for a touch of sweetness)
  • 1 tbsp espresso (for a hint of coffee magic)
  • A pinch of salt (to balance the flavors)
  • Your favorite coffee ice cream
  • Amaretti cookies (for a delightful crunch)

The Magic Begins:

  1. Chocolate Ball: Start by melting 2/3 of the white chocolate chips in a double boiler. Once melted, stir in the remaining chocolate to temper it. Grab a 100mm clear fillable ornament and spoon 4-5 tablespoons of chocolate into one half. Close it up, give it a good twirl to coat the inside, and give it a tap to remove any excess. Chill it in the fridge for about 25-20 minutes.

  2. Saucy Business: Let’s make the sauce! In a pot, whisk together water, sugar, cocoa powder, salt, and espresso. Stir this over medium heat until it thickens into a luscious, pourable chocolate sauce.

  3. Unveiling the Ball: Once the chocolate has set, carefully release it from the mold. Heat a flat-bottomed bowl or pan and gently press the chocolate ball in a circular motion until a hole about 2 inches in diameter forms.

  4. Serving with Flair: On a plate, place scoops of coffee ice cream and sprinkle some crushed amaretti cookies. Gently set the chocolate ball over this delicious mound. Now, for the grand finale, pour the hot chocolate sauce over the ball and watch as it gracefully melts away, revealing the hidden treasures inside.

  • It’s a Dessert and a Performance: The melting moment is dramatic and sure to draw oohs and aahs from your audience.
  • Mix and Match: Feel free to experiment with different ice cream flavors and cookie types.
