I was reading my Facebook feed and this recipe came through on Fine Cooking’s stream and it called to me – German Chocolate Bombes:

The photo just grabbed my attention and I adore German chocolate cake. I decided I just had to make them. I really wasn’t worried about putting them together – I’m pretty confident in the kitchen so I looked at the ingredients, sent hubby off with a shopping list and FORGOT THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF ANY NEW RECIPE.
Read the whole damn thing before you start.
I wondered how they got to be so nice and roundish but figured it took an ice cream scoop, blah, blah, blah. It takes a bombe mold. A silicone bombe mold. This I learned as I had all of the components in front of me ready to be turned into bombes.
I am going to purchase the damn molds so I can make them properly.
Fortunately I am quick on my feet and I have a pretty well stocked kitchen.
I improvised. I used a mini cheesecake pan.
They worked, they tasted divine but they weren’t technically bombes…
