Famed pastry chef and inventor of the cronut Dominique Ansel is making headlines for a new marshmallow flower that blooms when placed in hot chocolate. With hot chocolate season nearing its end, this beautiful dessert marks the perfect way to transition into spring.
The marshmallow flower is a new creation developed for Ansel's Tokyo cafe. Those who order the sugary sweet creation will be served a steaming cup of Varlhona dark chocolate into which the marshmallow will be placed. The gooey treat will then slowly bloom to reveal a tiny chocolate truffle in the middle. Customers can also sample Ansel's other new creation, which is his Easter-themed 'Peep-a-Boos' and his decadent new Bunny Fluff ice cream.
