What is a Magic Dessert Ball also known as a Magic Chocolate Ball?

Well,  it’s a spectacular dessert for sure, with that “oh wow” factor.  A Magic Chocolate Ball dessert is a hollow sphere of chocolate on the dessert plate, and when hot chocolate syrup is poured over the finished creation it melts away or opens up like a bird’s egg, revealing a surprise center.  Chefs put brownies, fruit and even ice cream inside the chocolate shells.
