- 175g of dark chocolate
- 50g of egg yolk
- 25g of sugar
- 125ml of whipping cream
- 125ml of milk
- 60g praline
- 75ml of whipping cream
- 8 x salted caramel balls
- For the chocolate bueno, melt 175g dark chocolate in a bain marie. Cream the egg and sugar together in a large bowl.
- In a pan, boil the whipping cream, praline paste and the milk together and pour onto the egg mixture. Return to the heat and cook until thickened, or until the mixture coats the back of a spoon (80˚C).
- Whip 75ml of whipping cream to soft peaks. Place the chocolate into a blender and blitz, slowly add the warm custard mix until all is incorporated and smooth. Pour the mix into a clean bowl. Allow to cool sightly before folding in the whipped cream. Pour half way up into the moulds.
- Make a well in the middle of each mould fill with a ball of salted caramel. Fill the moulds the rest of the way up with the bueno mixture and leave to set in the fridge.
