Preparation steps

  1. Chocolate mellow biscuit

    Mix eggs, honey (or inverted sugar) and caster sugar. Gradually add almond powder, flour, cocoa powder and yeast. Add liquid cream. Ultimately, add the melted butter and chocolate. Pour in a mould and bake during 20 minutes at 160°C in a ventiled oven. Shape 4 cm diameter disks. Line in a 5 x 4,5 cm rhodoïd circle mould a chocolate biscuit disk.

  2. Chocolate milk mousse

    Melt the chocolate and whisk with the hot milk to emulsify. Whisk the cream until foamy and add it to the chocolate/milk mix when it is up to 45/55°C. Immediately pour onto the circle mould previously filled with the biscuit disk. Freeze in a blast chiller then unmould.

  3. Rocher coating

    Melt the chocolate at 50°C. Add the neutral oil and whisk until it’s homogenized. Add the chopped almond and coat onto the chocolate mousse/biscuit pucks.

  4. Williams pear confit

    Heat the high fruit compote at 40°C. Mix the caster sugar with pectin. Sprinkle the mix into the high fruit compote. Bring to a boil, pour in 4 cm diameter silicon semi-circular domes then freeze in a blast chiller. Unmould and glaze with a neutral glaze.

  5. Cocoa sweetened paste

    Coarsely mix butter with dry ingredients. Add eggs and mix coarsely. Spread at 3 mm the paste between two guitar sheets. Cut out the cocoa paste in collar shape with a 5 cm diameter die-cutting grooved and a slick 4 cm diameter die-cutting. Cook between two silpat mats during 20 minutes at 160°C, in a ventilated oven. Place around a pear semi-circular dome.
