Pour the pre-set Hazelnut Chocolate with Éclat d'Or into a 6mm-tall frame on top of a sheet of confectionery dipping paper covered with a fine layer of milk chocolate.
Leave to set at 60°F (17°C).
Lay a 4mm-thick frame over the first, and pour out the Salted Hazelnut Praliné.
Leave to set at 60°F (17°C).
Add a 2mm-thick frame on top, and pour out the Dark Gianduja.
Leave to set at 60°F (17°C).

Add a 2mm-thick frame on top and pour out the pre-set TULAKALUM 75%. Immediately place a Crystal-Effect 3D Chocolate Sheet (Ref. 13174) on top.
Before the chocolate is completely set, remove the sheet to create a 3D effect.
Use a slicing machine to immediately cut out 22.5cm strips.
Then cut into 8.5cm bars using a knife.
Leave to set at 60°F (17°C) and a 60% relative humidity level.
