The ‘Bell’ will be available in store and for click and collect for a limited time at Reynold’s KOI Dessert Bar in Chippendale and KOI Dessert Kitchen in Ryde from December 1.
It will also feature at KOI’s pop-up dessert bars at the Darling Harbour Christmas Festival and Bastille Festival in Circular Quay.
While Reynold is known for his elaborate and complicated desserts, he made the Ferrero bauble treat with home cooks in mind.
Both recipes will be available at the Ferrero Rocher website so anyone can add the heavenly treats to their Christmas table this year.
