Maxime Bilet's "Exploding" Chocolate

Maxime Bilet, coauthor of Modernist Cuisine and the brand-new Modernist Cuisine at Home,* shared this easy, fun way to give chocolate a popping effect. Just melt your favorite type of chocolate with some butter, then mix in crushed puffed-rice cereal and some Pop Rocks—any flavor you like! Once it cools, break it up and surprise kids or adults with this novel treat.

What to buy: You can purchase large quantities of unflavored Pop Rocks–style candy online and at some specialty markets.
