Chocolate flower

  • Vegetarian Diet

    Diet based on cereals, pulses, nuts, seeds, vegetables, fruits and other animal foods such as honey and eggs. Excludes meat, fish, mollusks.

Method

  • In a bowl, add the chocolate, cover with plastic wrap, and put it in the microwave at 800 Watt for 1 ½ minutes.
  • Put 3 tablespoons of the melted chocolate on a silicone sheet (silpat) and spread it with a spatula on the whole surface of the silpat. Allow some time for it to stabilize.
  • Take a leaf-shaped pattern with 10cm length.
  • Carve the chocolate in “petals” by having the pattern as a guide, roll the silpat from the shorter sides and on its edges, place 2 cooking rings of 9 cm. The goal is to give the chocolate some curvature as it is cooling down.
  • Spread 2-3 tablespoons of the chocolate on another silpat and cut small circles with a 4cm cooking ring. Allow 10 minutes for it to stabilize well.
  • Carefully take out 10 “petals”. Take out, also, a small circle and cut it in half.
  • Take the one semi-circle, spread some melted chocolate on and stick 5 “petals”. Follow the same process with the other semi-circle too. Set aside to cool and stabilize.
  • Put some melted chocolate in the center of the serving dish and stabilize the half chocolate flower.
  • Put, in the center of the flower base, some melted chocolate and add, vertically, one macaron.
  • Put some more chocolate, so that the other half flower sticks on.
  • Pour over the hot crème anglaise and let the petals open up.
