A Bossche bol, sometimes called chocoladebol, is a lovely Dutch choux pastry ball. Essentially, a very large profiterole, filled with sweetened whipped cream and glazed with dark chocolate. As the chocolate cools, it forms into a shell that keeps much of the cream inside of the bossche bol as you eat it.
They are traditionally eaten out of the hand, without any utensils, but since it can be rather messy, you can serve it on a plate, with a fork. If you choose to eat it the traditional way, make sure you turn it upside down, so the chocolate shell stops the cream from spilling all over. Bossche bollen are usually served with coffee, so pour yourself a cup and enjoy a nice, chilled bol.
