Jyoti’s Chocolate Shells

02/26/21

Ingredients

For the shell:

  • high quality white chocolate
  • pink powdered food coloring (or any color you like!)
  • edible glitter
  • gold leaf

For the Filling:

  • macaron shells
  • dark chocolate ganache
  • crisp chocolate pearls
  • vanilla cake

Tools:

  • microwave safe bowl
  • silicone chocolate mould
  • chopstick or butter knife
  • plate or baking sheet

Instructions:

  • Melt white chocolate in a microwave safe bowl in 30 second increments until fully melted. Make sure to stir in between each round!
  • Divide your melted chocolate into two separate bowls, and dye one bowl with pink powdered food coloring (or any color of your choice!)
  • Spoon 1 Tbsp of white chocolate and 1 Tbsp of dyed pink chocolate into your mould.
  • Use the back of a chopstick or a butter knife to marble the chocolate and spread evenly along the sides of the mould. Allow to dry completely.
  • When the chocolate shell has hardened, add another tablespoon of melted chocolate and create a second layer. This ensures a strong shell for your fillings!
  • Once your shells have set, carefully remove them from their silicone moulds.
  • When you are ready to assemble, have a plate heated from the microwave, or a baking sheet warm out of the oven. We will use this for one half of each shell when “glueing” the shells together.
  • Fill one shell with broken macaron shells, dark chocolate ganache, crisp chocolate pearls, and pieces of vanilla cake. You can fill your shells with anything you like!
  • Take your second chocolate shell, and gently melt the edges on your warm plate or baking sheet, and immediately line it up with the filled half shell.
  • When your shells have dried completely and hold their shape, you are ready to decorate with edible glitter and gold leaf!
