Recipe Step by Step



710gNYANGBO 68%

600g whipping cream

110g invert sugar

40g glucose syrup

60g European butter

30g Balinese whole long peppers

Heat the Balinese long peppers in an oven at 50°C (122°F) until fragrant.

Crush the roasted peppers with a mortar and pestle to release the oils.

Add to the whipping cream. Cover, refrigerate and infuse for 24 hours.

Heat the cream and pepper mixture to 84°C (183°F).

Let steep for 15 minutes. Strain. Re-scale the cream.

Heat the invert sugar and glucose. Add to the cream. Bring to a boil.

Melted the NYANGBO 68% couverture to 50-55°C (131°F).

Gradually add the cream to the melted couverture. Stir from the center to start the emulsion. Add the remaining cream in stages until you have a nice elastic ganache. Let cool to 40°C (104°F) and emulsify with the European butter.

Add the ganache to the prepared frame (10 mm x 34 cm square).

Once the ganache has crystallized, prepare a thin chablon on top. Use a 37.5 mm frame on the guitar to cut into rectangles and cut it a second time with a 15 mm guitar frame.

Separate the bonbon pieces.

Enrobe with NYANGBO 68% couverture.

Use some additional finely ground Balinese long pepper to decorate the enrobed bonbons.
