Assembly and finishing
QS ABSOLU CRISTAL NEUTRAL GLAZE
Beat approx. 400g of the Amatika crémeux to the consistency of a whipped ganache.
On circles that are slightly smaller than the tartlet, randomly pipe small balls of different sizes that are all touching. Flatten slightly and freeze.
Use a spray gun to coat with ABSOLU CRISTAL NEUTRAL GLAZE and 10% water mix. Store in the freezer.
Place the dough in the tartlet molds and bake at 300-310°F (150-155°C) for approx. 25-30 minutes.
Use a 8mm nozzle to pipe out the creamed almonds onto silicon sheets with a slightly smaller diameter than the tartlet.
Bake at 345-355°F (175-180°C) for approx. 8-9 minutes.
Once cooled, coat the tartlets with melted Amatika and add in the creamed almond disks while the chocolate is still liquid.
Garnish with Amatika crémeux and leave to set in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
Place the glazed, piped disks of whipped Amatika crémeux and then add the hibiscus pieces.
Finish off by adding a thin chocolate leaf, and you’re done!
