Nutella Crunchy Chocolate Praline Log

Chocolate praline log - Lilie Bakery_

A very gourmet Yule log to delight your guests: the Chocolate praline log and crunchy nutella ! It consists of a creamy praline mousse with a praline insert, a crunchy nutella, a hazelnut biscuit and a milk chocolate mirror glaze...

What you will like with this praline log

  • Flavors: if you like praline, then this yule log is made for you! The praline mixes with the delicacy of nutella and milk chocolate.
  • Texture : this yule log is creamy and melting, the crispy nutella gives it crunch, the biscuit brings a little softness.
  • Difficulty level : as with all logs, this may seem difficult at first, but if you do it in advance, it's easier. You can freeze this praline log and only make the outer icing the day before D-Day, for example.

Ingredient details

  • Praline : it's in tablets, you can find it in the chocolate department of the supermarket.
  • Praline paste : you can find it in jars, in the pastry department at the supermarket or at Grand Frais for example. It is already sweet so no need to add sugar to the recipe.
  • Nutella : you can take this brand or any other hazelnut spread.

How to make a chocolate praline log?

  1. Praline insert : the pralinoise preparation is poured into an insert mold and then frozen until assembly.
  2. Hazelnut dacquoise biscuit : a soft and easy to prepare biscuit with a good taste of hazelnut.
  3. Crunchy nutella : we simply mix crumbled lace crêpes with melted milk chocolate and nutella.
  4. Praline mousse : a creamy and unctuous mousse made from praline paste, as easy to make as whipped cream.
  5. Assembly of the log : as soon as the praline mousse is ready, we assemble the log (detail in my step-by-step photos below).
  6. Milk chocolate mirror glaze : this icing is poured over the frozen praline log.

NB: the quantities of ingredients and the detailed recipe are given to you at the bottom of the page.

Log mold used for this recipe

It's about Silikomart Meringa Yule Log Mold. It is completely made of silicone and allows easy release. For the insert, I used the Silikomart insert mold, it is slightly shorter than the mold, but I don't mind.

My tips for a successful yule log

  • Make the log over several days : it is practical and the task seems less important. It keeps well in the freezer (about 2 weeks) well wrapped in cling film then in aluminum foil.
  • Have a kitchen thermometer handy: it is essential for this recipe, whether it is the insert, the mousse or the frosting. You can find inexpensive thermometers in the supermarket, I also recommend my professional kitchen thermometer.
  • For successful mirror glazing, the log must be frozen several hours before. It is the cold that freezes the chocolate on the praline log in a few moments.

How to store your log?

Your praline log will keep in the fridge until the moment of tasting. If you don't eat the whole log on D-Day, know that it keeps in the fridge for about 4 days.

Ingredients:

Creamy praline insert

  • 190 g heavy whipping cream 30%
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 20 g granulated sugar
  • 100 g praline tablets
  • 1 gelatin sheet Vahine (1,90 grams per leaf – 200 blooms)

Hazelnut dacquoise biscuit

  • 2 Egg whites
  • 15 g granulated sugar
  • 50 g hazelnut powder
  • 30 g icing sugar
  • 15 g cornstarch

Crunchy nutella

  • 60 g Nutella or other hazelnut spread
  • 50 g pastry milk chocolate
  • 50 g natural lace pancakes

Praline mousse

  • 2 egg yolks
  • 360 g heavy whipping cream 30%
  • 3 gelatin sheets Vahine (1,90 grams per leaf – 200 blooms)
  • 185 g praline paste already sweetened (in the pastry department or at Grand Frais)

Milk chocolate mirror glaze

  • 200 g granulated sugar
  • 100 g water
  • 100 g heavy whipping cream 30%
  • 150 g milk chocolate
  • 4 gelatin sheets Vahine (1,90 grams per leaf – 200 blooms)

Instructions:

Creamy praline insert

  • In a saucepan heat the cream. Let stand 5 minutes. Soften the gelatin in cold water.
  • Separately, whisk the egg yolks and powdered sugar until pale. Pour the hot cream in 3 times, beating well between each addition.
  • Return to the saucepan and heat over low heat until the cream coats the spoon (like custard) at around 80-82°. Not beyond otherwise it seeds. Off the heat, add the drained gelatin.
  • Pour into a container containing the pralinoise in pieces. Mix with a spatula to melt. If necessary pass the immersion blender to have a very smooth mixture.
  • Pour into an insert mold the same size as the log mold. Cool then freeze for 4 hours.

Hazelnut dacquoise biscuit

  • Preheat the oven to 180° traditional heat. Whisk together hazelnut powder, cornstarch and icing sugar. Separately, whip the egg whites with the sugar.
  • Incorporate the ingredients into the whipped egg whites with a spatula, so as not to break the egg whites.
  • Pour in a wide strip onto a sponge cake or baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 15/17 minutes, until golden brown.
  • Cool then cut a strip to the size of the log mould.

Crunchy nutella

  • Melt the milk chocolate and Nutella together in the microwave. Crumble the lace crêpes then mix with the melted chocolate.
  • Pack this mixture into a wide strip (not too thick) on a sponge cake or baking sheet with parchment paper. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Cut to the size of the log mould.

Praline mousse

  • Soften the gelatin in cold water.
  • In a saucepan, heat 110g of cream and the egg yolks, stirring constantly until it coats the spoon, around 82°.
  • Off the heat, add the drained gelatin. Pour this mixture over the praline paste, previously warmed in the microwave to make it smooth. Let cool (not less than 35°).
  • Meanwhile, whip the rest of the whipped cream. Gently fold the praline mixture into the whipped cream with a spatula.

Assembly of the log

  • Pour the praline mousse up to half of the log mould. Add the still-frozen praline insert, pressing lightly to push it into the mousse (not all the way to the bottom). Cover again with praline mousse.
  • Place the crunchy nutella strip, pressing lightly. Then place the hazelnut dacquoise biscuit on top, also pressing down. Fill the sides with praline mousse if necessary. Place in the freezer for at least 6 hours, overnight is better.

Milk chocolate mirror glaze

  • Soften the gelatin in cold water. In a saucepan, heat the water and sugar to 103 degrees to obtain a syrup.
  • Off the heat, add the single cream and then the drained gelatin.
  • Pour over the chocolate in pieces, stir with a spatula so that it melts.
  • Pour into a high container with a measuring spout then pass a mixer to make it smooth (do not raise the mixer so as not to make bubbles).
  • When it reaches 35°, pour this glaze over the frozen log, placed on a rack with a collecting dish below. When it is almost set, decorate with praline or hazelnuts then refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving.
  • If you have any left over after the meal, know that it will keep for up to 4 days in the refrigerator.

Notes:

Do you want to make the log in advance? It's possible ! As long as it stays in the freezer it's perfect. You take it out on D-Day to make the milk chocolate mirror glaze, then you let it thaw gently in the refrigerator until tasting (for about 4 hours).
How to adapt the ingredients to the size of your mold? The volume calculation is mandatory…
  1. Calculate the volume of my mold (dimensions given in my recipe)
  2. Calculate the volume of your mold
  3. Divide the volume of your mold by the volume of my mold
= you get the number to multiply by each of your ingredients.
This works for logs, cakes, etc.

      Hello Annie, in principle we do not refreeze something that has started to thaw: so if you want to do the mirror glaze on it before putting your mouth back in the freezer you will have to put it back in the freezer very quickly, it must not soften during the operation ! This is the reason why I always prefer to make the mirror glaze just before putting my still frozen log in the fridge to thaw slowly. Goodbye :)

    Hello,
    I made your super simple recipe and it looks super delicious!
    She's in the freezer!
    However I had a little problem but I don't know what caused it when mixing for the foam. I mixed my cream and praline paste it was quite hard and made lumps so I mixed!
    I whipped my cream and when I mixed it made lumps again and deposited the praline mixture in the whipped cream which did not mix. I waited for 34 degrees though!
    Do you have any idea what happened?
    A big thank-you !!!!!

      Hello Victorine, the praline paste should be smooth and almost liquid when you open your jar (yours must have hardened in its jar). So you would have had to warm it up for a few seconds in the microwave and it would have had the right texture. And I confirm to you, it is a very greedy log! Happy holidays see you soon :)

      Hello Julie, the mousse must be prepared just before pouring it into the mold during assembly! Read the recipe it is written. Suddenly it will solidify in your salad bowl instead of solidifying in the log mould… I repeat, but stick strictly to the recipe, otherwise it's a waste. Goodbye

      Lilie bakery

      27th November 2023

      Hello Ophélie, it is indeed a temperature problem that you are describing to me there. The icing was too liquid when you poured it so it slipped without clinging to your log (which must be well frozen, this is the essential condition). And when you wanted to pick it up it had already cooled down, therefore thickened. The key is that the log is really frozen very well, and the icing is at the right temperature. Tip: before pouring onto your log, pour onto the back of a ladle that you have put in the freezer before: if it coats properly then do it immediately on your log because it is at the right temperature!
      For the praline, take that of St Lucia with cocoa butter. See you soon :)

      Hello Coralie, so the bonus of the praline is that inside there is praline and milk chocolate (which helps hold the insert). So if you change to praline paste, it will be runny, unless you add melted milk chocolate with it (you'll have to test to find out how much). See you soon :)

    Good evening!
    Is nestle “praline” chocolate equivalent to praline?

    Thank you very much

      Hello Jeanne, no they are not the same products. The Poulain praline contains 50% praline, this is the one you need. See you soon :)

    Hello,

    I am making this log for Christmas this year. I will make the icing on the evening of the 23rd. As this is a first for me, I was wondering: how to unmold the insert and then the log without breaking anything...

      Hello Cé, your log must be very very frozen: it will be very hard, so you will be able to remove the silicone from the mold without damaging it. For the insert it's the same, if you have good material (for the insert, you run a blade around the edges and remove). See you soon :)

    Hello,
    I can't find a log mold where I live and I don't have time to order before Christmas either.
    Can I use a cake pan?

    Thank you!

      Hello Chloe, I don’t see how to unmold such a log from a cake mold without making a mess! And above all you need an insert mold too… Happy holidays :)

    Good evening. I would love to make your log recipe for New Year’s Eve. I would like to know if you can make the mirror glaze with dark chocolate? Thank you ☺️ Happy Holidays!

    Hello,

    I have a quick question for you, when you simply say "heat" for example for the liquid cream at the insert stage in this recipe (or for the lemon juice and sugar at the mousse stage in the lemon meringue log recipe), do the ingredients need to be brought to the boil? If not, can you tell me the heating level? THANKS!!

    Thank you very much for your recipes, they are great!!!! :)

    Hello, I am making this log for New Year's Eve, thank you for this recipe which clearly tempts you. I made the praline insert last night and scrupulously respected the dosages but it does not completely complete the insert mold (I bought the same ones as recommended). My question is therefore should we make a second insert (so this will make a round instead of a half-round?

    Thanking you for your response!

      Hello Clothilde, it's normal not to fill the entire insert, it would be too cloying... Leave it as is, you need more praline mousse than insert. Happy holidays :)

    Thank you very much for your response but I realize I didn't express myself correctly... I wanted to say that I found myself with a double dose of dough for the praline insert (finally I was able to make and freeze 2 with the doses indicated). Is this normal? I'm thinking of only putting one in the log, but I find that strange...

      Hello Clothilde, perhaps it was necessary to fill the mold more in this case? Sorry but since I wasn't in the kitchen with you, how do I know? I always give a margin of proportion because not everyone has the same insert mold as me. But from there to having double, that's a lot... Happy holidays :)

    Hello, thank you for this recipe!
    I had a big problem when making the praline mousse. I put my praline paste in the microwave to thin it out, I whipped up the whipped cream but when I added the gelatin to the cream, it solidified very quickly. I had lots of lumps without knowing what to do with them (microwave the cream/praline/gelatin mixture before mixing it with the whipped cream? Start all over again?). Do you have a backup solution?
    I'm afraid my log isn't really edible, I'm very disappointed to have missed it at the very last step

      Hello Charline, if you reread the recipe, the gelatin must be added to the hot preparation just after removing it from the heat, not later otherwise it will no longer melt! That's what happened to you I think. Starting the foam again is the only solution. Happy holidays :)

    I tested this recipe ahead of Christmas Day to see if I was happy with it before offering it to my family. The answer is clearly yes ! I love it, can't wait to do it again and for him to discover it

    Hello,

    When icing, can all the chocolate that has fallen into the receiving tray be reheated to pour it back onto the log?

    Thank you so much!

      Hello Pauline, as it contains gelatin, it is difficult to recover it if it has had time to set... You must put it back immediately if it is not pasty. I never reheat it. Happy holidays :)

    Log made over three days with the insert then the other devices then the icing.
    A few small scares but everything went very well in the end.
    More than just to enjoy this afternoon :-)
    For this beautiful, accessible recipe with little equipment and “classic” ingredients!
    I made the insert mold with a box of baking paper (it's the right width), which I cut out and covered with cling film.

    Hello,
    Thank you for all your recipes.
    I just finished making this one, but in round cakes for a birthday. I took the same proportions (except for the crispy which I doubled).
    There were no more plain lace crepes so I took the milk chocolate one. It also works by lightly microwaving them.
    I encountered only one problem, with the praline mousse. It's a little too liquid. I put everything in the freezer but it was already leaking out. I'm crossing my fingers that the gelatin will take effect quickly.

    Hello,
    I made this praline log 2 days before Christmas then left it in the freezer covered with cling film and aluminum foil.
    Frosting the evening before then in the fridge until tasting the next day at noon.
    Great visual and taste result: light and well-marked praline taste.
    Everyone feasted !
    I have tried many of your recipes and they are always excellent!
    Thank you!
