To ensure that the chocolate is crisp and shiny, we recommend that you use a thermometer to follow the temperature curves described in the recipe.

Recipe

Let's get baking!

Melt the couverture chocolate in a bain-marie, taking care not to let it come into contact with water.

To ensure that the chocolate is shiny and crisp, it is advisable to use a thermometer to check the following temperature curves. This is called tempering the chocolate! First melt your chocolate at 55°C, then let it cool to 28°C and finally raise the temperature to 32°C. Once your chocolate has reached 32°C, you can pour it into your silicone moulds.

Remove any excess chocolate from the moulds. Repeat this operation a second time a few minutes later.

Turn the mould over onto baking paper and leave your chocolate shells to set for 1 whole day.

Once they have set, you can carefully remove them from the moulds.

2. Chocolate mousse :

Separate the egg whites from the yolks. Using an electric mixer, beat the egg whites until stiff, then add the sugar in 3 batches to make a French meringue.

Melt the couverture chocolate with the butter over a medium heat, then add the egg yolks, taking care not to let the chocolate get too hot.
