Lindt Dome of Decadence

IMG_0346

I love how Lindt always comes up with new things! This time, it's a cracker of a dessert that they've called the Lindt Dome of Decadence.

According to Marketing Director of Lindt Andrew Curran, there is a very deep seated psychology that has to do with people and eating chocolate. Apparently, chocolate enjoyers are divided into two categories: Controllers, and Indulgers. The controllers love to enjoy and savour their chocolate in small amounts, and the indulgers just love to dive head first into abundant amounts of the stuff.



Me? I think I'm a controller, but when it comes to Lindt, I could always do with just a little bit more.

But, before we get into the nitty gritty of the dome, Lindt prove themselves to be gracious hosts by greeting us with chocolate martinis and other, equally decadent food.

They've got Master Choclatiers on hand to answer all our questions.

And so we begin.

The dome is made of tempered Lindt Chocolate set into a mould.

A chocolate base gets a scattering of roasted hazelnuts, and then beautiful vanilla bean and white chocolate ice cream.

More hazelnuts, then the dome gets carefully placed onto the top.

Now, the fun bit. When you order a dome of decadence, you get a little pot of warm molten chocolate to yourself.

What happens next?


I could just look at that all day. 

The molten chocolate coats the top of the dome before it collapses in on itself to reveal the beautiful ice cream within. This luxurious dessert is definitely made to share, and comes in three flavours - berry, salted caramel, and hazelnut. What can I say, except that this lives up to the Lindt stamp of excellence, and I love how it brings back a sense of theatre into dining. 

So, are you an indulger or a controller? ;)
