A delicious sight

My brother Michael, the other foodie in the family, just got back from two weeks in Hawaii (the lucky dog). He came home raving about Mama’s Fish House in Maui. Not being a fish lover, he even raved about the fish. But his favorite part of the meal, which he knew I would enjoy, was the dessert. Called the Black Pearl, it was a passion fruit mousse enrobed in dark chocolate and presented in a shell made of fortune cookie dough. The presentation was gorgeous, as you can see below. Anyone got a recipe for this?

Wow! That's a beauty.

Why don't you start something - asking bloggers to try something at home to duplicate this and submit pictures and recipes to for us to view. Bet there would be some great variations. I already envision the cookie portion being made as a molded gingersnap.

You are genius. I will put the challenge out there. And since my book is comiing out, I could offer up a copy of it for entries. Thanks for the idea!
