“El Jardin” Liquid Ganache
Whipped Mint Gelatin

Assembling

Instructions

“El Jardin” Liquid Ganache
  1. Heat the cream, liquorice paste, sorbitol, and inverted sugar to 50º C. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler. Combine the cream mixture and melted chocolate and whisk to emulsify. Cool to 45º C and whisk in the butter.
Whipped Mint Gelatin
  1. Soak the gelatin in cold water and when soft, squeeze out excess water. In a small pot over low heat, melt the gelatin in a small amount of the water. Whisk in the remaining ingredients.
  2. In a mixer, beat the mixture until it has the consistency of meringue. Pour into hemispherical silicone moulds and freeze. Slice into thick coins for assembly.
Mint Gelatin for Coating
  1. Heat the ingredients, except the mint paste, and bring to boil. Remove from the heat and whisk in the mint paste. Cool to 75ºC.
Assembling
  1. Pipe the ganache, filling the small rounds, and let set. Using a thin needle, dip the whipped gelatin coins in the gelatin for coating. Place as a cap on top of rounds and decorate.
