Recipe Step by Step
MILLOT 74% CHOCOLATE & COCOA NIB SHORTCRUST PASTRY
250g MILLOT 74%
470g European-style butter
860g Bread flour
330g Confectioner’s sugar
75g Extra fine almond flour
40g Cocoa nibs
7g Fleur de sel
Gradually add the cold eggs. Combine the mixture with the flour, confectioner’s sugar, almond flour, the ground nibs and fleur de sel.
Briefly mix all these ingredients together. Immediately spread the mixture out.
Bake at 300°F (150°C).
160g Heavy cream 36%
2g Madagascan vanilla bean
0.5g Tonka beans
20g Glucose DE 38/40
45g Salted butter
Sift out any pieces of bean, add in more cream if necessary and combine the glucose.
Cook the sugar in several stages to make a light-colored caramel.
Deglaze with the salted butter. Add the hot cream and cook the mixture at 235°F (108°C).
MILLOT 74% DESSERT GANACHE
390g Heavy cream 36%
65g Invert sugar
300g MILLOT 74%
Immediately mix using an immersion blender to make a perfect emulsion.
Use your ganache straight away or leave to set until you are satisfied.
65g Cocoa nibs
5g European-style butter
Mix until the sugar sets. Separate out the nibs.
Put the mixture back on the heat and caramelize it. Once it is cooked, add a knob of butter and cool it on a marble surface, stirring all the while, so you can separate out all the nibs.
Assembly and finishing
SQ MILLOT 74%
SQ Cocoa Butter
Prepare the shortcrust pastry, caramel and ganache.
Between two guitar sheets, spread the shortcrust pastry out to a thickness of 2mm.
Cut it into 7cm disks and make a 4cm hole in the middle of two out of every three to create rings.
Bake at 300°F (150°C) for 20 minutes. Give them a coating of cocoa butter.
Spread the disks out between two guitar sheets decorated with pre-set chocolate.
Cut out 7cm thick disks and pierce some 3cm holes.
Use a piping bag with a plain, round nozzle to pipe the ganache onto the disk, then put a chocolate ring in place.
Repeat at the other side to make a third layer.
Finish by filling the middle of the disk with a spiral of caramel and adding on some caramelized cocoa nibs.
