Recipe steps

ALMOND INSPIRATION SPRAY MIX

  1. Melt the ingredients together. Use a chinois to strain before using the mixture. To give your spray mix a velvety finish, heat the mixture to 105-115°F (40-45°C) and spray it onto your frozen product.

SWEET AND SAVORY CANDIED ALMONDS

  • 125gSugar
  • 50gWater
  • 250gBlanched almonds
  • 4gFleur de sel
  1. Toast the almonds at 300°F (150°C).
  2. Cook the sugar and water at 240°F (115°C).
  3. Add the almonds to the cooked sugar. Add the fleur de sel once the sugar has formed a syrup.
  4. Break the mixture up into pieces and leave to chill on a tray.

EGG BASE

  1. Mold the cubes in two layers using tempered ALMOND INSPIRATION, blocking out one side of the square with plastic film.
  2. Leave in the refrigerator for a few minutes. Temper your Spray Mix to give it a velvety texture then apply it using a spray gun.
  3. Gently soften the top of the cube then melt the bottom of the egg slightly and stick the two together.

Assembly and finishing

Temper the Spray Mix to 85-90°F (30-32°C), then use a spray gun to apply it to the egg molds. Immediately sprinkle with roasted chopped almonds. Leave to set. Mold with tempered ALMOND INSPIRATION. Turn over, leave the liquid to spread for a few moments, then smooth away any excess. Drain the molds by holding them suspended over two rulers. Before setting is complete, trim away any excess, then mold again (Tap the mold to get the thickness you require). Leave to set, trim again, then refrigerate for a few minutes to finish off the setting process. Leave at a temperature of 65°F (17°C) until the chocolate is ready to slip out of its mold. Stick the egg halves together by melting each one’s edges on a hot surface (135-140°F or 58-60°C) so that they seal firmly. Leave to set.
