Chefs create desserts inspired by Girl Scout cookies



Wrap tightly with plastic and freeze for at least 1 hour.

Melt 2 cups dark semisweet chocolate.

Wrap two plates tightly with plastic wrap.

Using small spoon, make a chocolate circle on plastic wrap that matches the size of bottom of the bombe.

Carefully pull bombe out of bowl, and remove all plastic wrap and place directly on top of melted chocolate circle.

Carefully drizzle melted chocolate over top of bombe until completely coated. Drizzle fast, as chocolate sets quickly.

Place bombe back in freezer for about 15 minutes. Remove from freezer, using a paring knife, trim off excess chocolate.

Slice bombe in half, present for service using remaining ground cookie for garnish, and/or whole cookie of each to represent each layer.
