INSTRUCTIONS

Moist chocolate biscuit:

  • Melt the GUANAJA 70% BAKING BAR with the butter in microwave or over a double boiler. (see our "How to temper chocolate" tips).
  • Add the yolks to the hot chocolate/butter mixture, then a bit of beaten whites to make the mixture more relaxed, and lastly add the rest of the whites with a spatula.
  • Add the sifted flour.
  • Cook in a buttered and sugared tart pan at 375°F (190ºC) degree for around 5 minutes.

 

Whipped ganache: 
  • Bring the cup of cream to a boil with the honey.
  • Gradually pour onto the chopped Valrhona Baking Dark Chocolate.
  • Add the 1 cup of cream. Store in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours.
  • Whip until you obtain a creamy texture that is stiff enough to be piped using the pastry bag.

Assembly and presentation: 
  • Using the pastry bag, pipe the ganache onto the moist biscuit bottom, decorate with any of your favorite red fruits and sprinkle with chocolate shavings.
