The Magic Rock of Christmas by Yann Couvreur

On the occasion of the holidays, the pastry chef Yann Roofer has imagined a new entremet inspired by the flavors of the iconic Ferrero Rocher. A real gourmet trompe-l’oeil, the Rocher Magique, created for the 40th anniversary of the essential Christmas chocolate candy, will consist of all the popular flavors of the Ferrero Rocher while drawing inspiration from the shape of the pyramid:

Its chocolate shell filled with hazelnut and milk feuilletine encloses a gourmet milk chocolate mousse. A heart mixing salty praline and crunchy meringue on a soft biscuit enhances the tasting as if by magic. This crunchy chocolate rock is topped with an airy hazelnut cream as a snowy coat, all sprinkled with crispy hazelnut chips.

All is said !
