Dessert 3 Chocolates

Dessert 3 chocolates - Lilie Bakery

A lovely dessert for all occasions: 3 chocolate entremets and its crispy praline base. Elegant to serve and very gourmet with its three superimposed mousses: white chocolate, milk chocolate and dark chocolate. It will certainly be unanimous!

A 3-chocolate cake to which we add a touch of crisp thanks to lace crepes and a cocoa-hazelnut sponge cake. I show you here my step-by-step in photos and my tips to make it a success at home!

Some details about this recipe

  • flavors : total gluttony! The taste of the 3 chocolates mingle inside this dessert. The hazelnut is also present in the crispy praline and to a lesser extent in the cocoa-hazelnut sponge cake.
  • Texture : the mousses of this 3-chocolate dessert are very creamy in the mouth, I balanced the dose of gelatin in order to keep the creamy effect (and not stiff). The praline part is crispy and the sponge cake soft.
  • Difficulty level : average. If you have already made desserts, no worries. Otherwise, you must familiarize yourself with the use of the adjustable pastry ring. The different mousses of the entremets are made one after the other, you can do it in advance.

Choose your ingredients well

For best results, choose quality chocolates: their taste is more subtle, less sweet than those found in supermarkets. Side dark chocolate, I recommend 55% cocoa or stronger if you are a big fan of chocolate. For the milk chocolate, I recommend 35% cocoa. As to with white chocolate, you can opt for 35% cocoa butter which will not be too sweet.

The cream used in the mousses of this 3-chocolate dessert must absolutely be whole at 30% fat, otherwise it will not work. The gelatin I use is simply the one you find at the supermarket.

How to make a 3 chocolate dessert?

  1. Genoese : this step can be done in advance the day before. The sponge cake is prepared and then baked on a plate in the pastry ring.
  2. Crisp : very easy to make, just mix the ingredients. It is then packed on the cooked sponge cake.
  3. Dark chocolate mousse : melt the dark chocolate in a little cream and then pour it into the whipped cream. We pour this mousse on the crisp.
  4. Milk chocolate mousse : melt the milk chocolate in a little cream then pour it into the whipped cream. Pour this mousse over the dark chocolate mousse.
  5. White chocolate mousse : melt the white chocolate in a little cream then pour it into the whipped cream. Pour this mousse over the milk chocolate mousse.
  6. Décor : simply chocolate shavings made with a grater on melted chocolate on a metal plate.

My tips for a successful dessert

  • do it in advance : when there are several steps to do, I always advise you to do it the day before, or the day before. This is the case for this dessert 3 chocolates.
  • respect the setting time between each mousse: it is essential to block the mousse in the freezer between each level, otherwise they will mix together.
  • use a Rhodoid strip for a clean release: this allows a result like at the pastry chef (and it is very quick to remove).

How to store your 3 chocolate dessert?

Once made, this 3-chocolate dessert will keep in the fridge for about 4-5 days. I advise you to place it in an airtight bell so that it retains its flavors well (and does not take on the one from the fridge…).

Preparation:

Chocolate-hazelnut sponge cake

  • Preheat the oven to 180° traditional heat. Mix the flour, hazelnut powder and cocoa.
  • Whip the egg whites with the powdered sugar then incorporate the egg yolks then the dry ingredients in several times. Use a spatula so as not to break the egg whites too much.
  • Spread the mixture on a sponge cake plate, ideally in the pastry circle set to 22cm (this allows you not to waste any sponge cake).
  • Bake for 13 minutes. Leave to cool then remove the sponge cake from the baking sheet.
  • Arrange the circle (adjusted to 21/22cm) on a flat support then line the sides with rhodoïd film (this allows you to unmold more cleanly at the end). Place the sponge cake in the bottom.

Crunchy praline

  • Melt the pralinoise and the milk chocolate in the microwave, smooth.
  • Add the crumbled lace crepes then pack the mixture on the sponge cake in the circle. Refrigerate while waiting for the rest.

Dark chocolate mousse

  • Soften the gelatin in cold water. In a saucepan, heat 70ml of cream with the dark chocolate in pieces over low heat to melt. Smooth, off the heat add the drained gelatin.
  • Whip 180ml of soft whipped cream then add the melted chocolate in two batches, using a spatula. Pour over the crispy praline then put in the freezer for 30 minutes or 1 hour to 1 hour 30 minutes in the fridge to solidify the mousse.

Milk chocolate mousse

  • Soften the gelatin in cold water. In a saucepan, heat 70ml of cream over low heat with the milk chocolate in pieces to melt. Smooth, off the heat add the drained gelatin.
  • Whip 180ml of soft whipped cream then add the melted chocolate in two batches, using a spatula. Pour over the dark chocolate mousse then put in the freezer for 30 minutes or 1 hour to 1 hour 30 minutes in the refrigerator to solidify the mousse.

White chocolate mousse

  • Soften the gelatin in cold water. In a saucepan, heat 70ml of cream over low heat with the white chocolate in pieces to melt. Smooth, off the heat add the drained gelatin.
  • Whip 180ml of soft whipped cream then add the melted chocolate in two batches, using a spatula. Pour over the milk chocolate mousse then place in the fridge overnight (8 hours).

Decor chocolate shavings

  • Melt the chocolate then smooth on a metal or marble plate. Allow to cool to harden slightly. With a grater, make long shavings (which roll up on themselves). Decorate the dessert.

Notes:

This dessert can be kept for about 4/5 days in the refrigerator, in an airtight bell to preserve its flavour.

    I made this dessert this weekend for the first time and my guests were amazed. If I hadn't had witnesses to my preparation, my mother-in-law believed that I had bought it. I made the dessert to the letter except for the crispiness. I couldn't find any praline paste so I made it with a chocolate praline pastry chef and everyone enjoyed it. Thank you for the recipe

      Hello Isabelle, you should calculate the volume of your mold in cm and divide it by the volume of my mold (3419cm3). You will get the number by which to multiply the ingredients. As a reminder, the volume of a rectangular mold is calculated as follows: Length x width x height. Goodbye
