Our Greatest Geological Discovery Is This Chocolate Boulder With Edible Geodes Inside

By Andrew Liszewski on at

If you thought Cadbury Creme Eggs were humanity’s greatest confectionery creation, Alex O’Brien Yeatts, a baking and pastry student at the Culinary Institute of America, has come up with a dessert that looks straight out of a geology textbook—not a cookbook.

Working with cake decorator Abby Lee Wilcox, Yeatts created what looks like a massive boulder. When cracked open, it’s filled with crystal-like geodes, making it look like a valuable chuck of amethyst. However, the entire thing is actually made from chocolate and sugar, and is completely edible—if you want a sugar high that will last until Christmas.

Instead of millions of years, it took Yeatts and Wilcox six months to create this delectable rock, although he’s yet to reveal on his Instagram account exactly how much sugar and chocolate went into it. Far more than the Easter bunny could ever carry, that’s for sure. [Instagram via Neatorama]
