Equipment

  • Flexible half sphere silicone molds

How to make chocolate brownies

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 
    I multiplied the brownie recipe by 1 1/2 times so I could fill a half sheet pan. Spray a half sheet pan with non stick spray.  Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl.  Then in a separate bowl mix all the wet ingredients.  
    Combine the wet ingredients to the dry. Pour the batter into the prepared half sheet pan and bake for 15 minutes, or until just done.  Take out and allow to cool to room temperature and then place in the refrigerator. Once completely cooled take a round cookie cutter the same size as your half sphere molds and cut out 12 rounds of chocolate cake.

How to make the peanut butter filling

  • in a stand mixer using a paddle whip together all three ingredients. Once it has come to a smooth consistency. Take a small (1-2 oz) ice cream scoop and make 12 peanut ball balls. keep in the refrigerator until you are ready to use.

How to make banana white chocolate mousse

  • Take gelatin and water and bloom for 5 minutes in a ramekin.  Place bananas in food processor and pulse several time to chop the bananas into smooth consistency. Meanwhile take white chocolate and melt over a double boiler or in the microwave until completely melted.  
    Melt the gelatin by placing the ramekin in the left over water from the double boiler until the gelatin has completely melted.   Then take the whip cream and pour into a mixing bowl.  Whip the cream until you have reached stiff peaks.  Pour the gelatin into the whipped cream and mix for 20 seconds.
    Combine white chocolate and bananas and mix until well combined. ( The white chocolate should be warm so it doesn't set but not really hot or else it will melt the cream.) Then fold yogurt and whipped cream into the white chocolate-banana mixture until you have a smooth consistency. Then take 12 half moon molds and fill almost to the top.
    Then take your peanut butter balls and place in the middle of the banana mousse by pushing down to the center of the crescent. Smooth over the tops with an offset spatula, and place a disk of brownie on top. Place the whole thing in the freezer for at least 6 hours or overnight.

How to make chocolate mirror glaze

  • In a small bowl bloom gelatin powder in 3 tbsp of water.  Place sugar, water, cocoa powder, and cream in a pot and turn on medium heat.  Stir regularly until it comes to a boil.  Then add in the chocolate.  
    Stir until completely combined.  Then add in the gelatin and stir until smooth.  You can use the glaze immediately if you want or you can save the glaze for another time, just bring the mixture up to 110 degrees before using.
     If using right away take your bombs out of the freezer and unmold them and place them on top of wire rack that has a sheet pan underneath. (Alternatively you can take a toothpick and stab each bomb and dip each one in the mirror glaze )
    Pour the glaze over top each bomb making sure to pour in a circular motion so the whole thing gets covered. I added a little dusting sprinkles that I had turned into a powder for a little added effect. Place in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve.
