    Chocolate Glaze

     

    1. Bloom gelatine in cold water, leave to set in fridge.
    2. Heat the water, sugar and condensed milk in a saucepan.
    3. Bring to a boil and turn off the heat.
    4. Add the gelatine.
    5. Pour hot liquid on top of chopped chocolate.
    6. Using a stick blender, emulsify the mixture till smooth and bubble-less. (Use a long tall container perfect for the stick blender as it is a small mix).
    7. Glaze can be used at 32˚c, or stored overnight and melted the next day.

     

    Chocolate Mousse

     

    1. Whip both ingredients together until a light velvety mousse forms.
    2. Pipe mixture on top of soft chocolate caramel, slightly under the top of the shell (leave a 1mm gap for the glaze).
    3. Refrigerate till set.
    4. Reheat glaze if need be, pour or pipe on top of set mousse, finish with extra sea salt.
