Hazelnut domes

caramel is definitely my ‘guilty pleasure’ ❤ and it’s so delicious in combination with hazelnut and chocolate…
this pastry has a very creamy caramel mousse, a soft chocolate praline cremeux, a hazelnut joconde biscuit, and all this covered with a caramel glacage!

you may think that this pastry is quite full and sweet by all the caramel… but on the contrary, due to the balance in the taste combinations, this pastry is so irresistibly delicious ❤

sable breton:
stir the egg yolks and the sugar, add the butter and then the other ingredients. Knead a fine dough and put in the fridge for 2 hours. Roll out thinly and take small squares with baking forms, and bake at 170C for about 15 min. Leave to cool and sprinkle one side with melted dark chocolate

chocolate praline cremeux:
melt the sugar with a little bit water, and make a golden brown caramel, pour it over the roasted hazelnuts, cool it, and put it in a blender till you get a hazelnut pasta.

Bring the milk and the whipped cream to the boil. Stir the egg yolk with the cornstarch and add it to the milk, heat it till 86C, pour over the chocolate and add the hazelnut praline. Pour it into small half-spheres silicone molds and put it in the freezer
