Assembly and finishing
Prepare and spread out the shortcrust pastry. Cut it into rectangles. Keep the offcuts and leave them at room temperature, then use a piping bag with a 6mm plain round nozzle to pipe the pastry into wavy lines.
Bake at 300°F (150°C) until they take on an even golden-brown color.
Mold some pre-set couverture into bars.
Make the praliné and use it to fill in the bars. Put the shortcrust pastry square in place. Fill in any gaps.
Mix some spirulina, tea, essential oils or other ingredients of your choice into some pre-set INSPIRATION couverture.
Spread between two sheets of confectionery dipping paper, then cut it into leaf shapes.
Leave the leaves to set, then stick the shortcrust pastry waves on top.
Turn out the bars, then place the leaves on the bars (see photo). You could also make a framed praliné, cut it into shapes and place these on the shortcrust pastry rectangles.
Then coat the whole assembly.
