Assembly and finishing


Use a 6cm cutter to cut the soft biscuit into pieces and store them in the freezer. Turn out the apricot crémeux and hazelnut caramel insert and store them in freezer.Store the nougatine in a sealed container with a silica gel sachet to stop it absorbing any moisture before use. Put the mousse in a piping bag.Assembly: Pour 45g of mousse in a Silikomart Universo 90 mold. Put the insert in the middle of the mousse, pressing down a little. Add on the soft biscuit while it is as cold as possible, pressing down firmly. Store in the freezer for 24 hours.Finishing: Melt the glaze at 105°F (40°C) and emulsify it in a Turmix (food processor) to get rid of any air bubbles. Leave to cool a little to 97-100°F (36-38°F). Place the turned out frozen desserts on a cooling rack. Coat them with chocolate glaze.Temper some Andoa Noire or Amatika chocolate and pour a small amount on a 4cm by 24cm strip of acetate.
