An elegant and refined dessert that you will love to serve… This Dulcey entremets, crunchy praline & hazelnut ! A delicate Dulcey mousse, accompanied by a layer of crispy praline and a soft hazelnut cookie.
What is the Dulcey?
Le Dulcey is a chocolate created by the French chocolatier Valrhona: a blond chocolate (not white, but blond) with a slightly caramelized and biscuit taste. Its color is moreover rather ocher beige. It is sold in tablet to taste or in pistoles depending on how you want to use it.
I advise you to taste it if you have never done it before: it is really a very greedy flavor.
How to prepare this Dulcey dessert?
Like all desserts, the production is done in several stages. First of all the base, here we realize a hazelnut cookie very soft. Then we prepare a crispy praline that we will come to flow on the biscuit. Lastly we realize the Dulcey moss.
To make this mousse, I incorporated melted Dulcey chocolate into a whipped cream base to create a light effect when tasting. I hope you will like it !
How to make chocolate decorations?
This time, I stayed rather sober in decorations with my chocolate threads and my bitter cocoa sprinkled! But know that anything is possible, do as you wish.
To achieve these chocolate spirals that you see in the photo it's very simple, you need a sheet / strip of rhodoid. If you want a golden glitter effect like me, then take a transfer sheet for chocolate.
You spread the melted chocolate (nothing else) evenly. Then using a pastry comb, you scrape the tape. Then you twist the strip while it is drying. Once dried, all you have to do is peel off the strip easily, the chocolate strands will keep their shape!
