Heart-stoppingly delicious

Scroll down to the bottom of this page for one of the most amazingly unhealthy desserts ever conceptualized: the Krispy Kreme Chocolate Icebox Bombe. (Step 1: Line a bowl with doughnuts.) Behold the nutritional info:

Per serving: 921 calories, 13 g protein, 80 g carbohydrates, 66 g fat, 161 mg cholesterol, 34 g saturated fat, 251 mg sodium, 5 g dietary fiber

(Thanks to Debby for the link.)

For extra credit, go to your local airport with one of these and ask the security screener "Is it okay if I take this bombe I made onto the plane?"

Well, if you're gonna make it for NYE, you better get cracking: "The bombe must be started at least 2 days in advance. It is made in 2 stages on 2 consecutive days. (It can be made up to 8 days ahead.)"

I always figure out the calories of the entire thing, since I have a tendency to eat whole pints of ice cream and such (which is why I only get diet stuff). So it makes 24 servings, at 921 calories per serving... (head explodes)

I think I will actually make this and see who goes into diabetic coma at the party. Fun for all! I do have some left over sparklers...Better get started

Hey, it's got 13 g of protein and 5 g of dietary fiber! That doesn't sound unhealthful to me.
