A most beautiful dessert~Star worthy~
When I saw this dessert at La Casserole Carrée..I knew I had to make it..her blog is exquisite..her creations sublime..No comments allowed..I have sometimes e-mailed to tell her how beautiful her blog is..this is a small tribute..
It's a special dessert sure to please the chocolate lover..I could have put more chocolates..but it's for my husband and he will have each piece w/ a chocolate:) Different if you have company..the more chocolates the merrier.I can see See's in many futures:)
I used these..
They are all seashells..fish..pretty ....
It's called Box Of Chocolates dessert..like a blog I follow:)..and like..
The recipe is at la Casserole Carrée..just follow the link above..
To sum it up.. you use a basic crust..you could even use a sweeter one.. I think a shortbread crust would be divine also..and blind bake.. then finish baking w/out the paper and weights until golden..
Once cooled you add your mousse type filling.. she makes hers w/ 3 egg yolks and whites..I did the same..I added my nuts to this mixture as well as the Frangelico..you spread on top and leave overnight to chill,covered in the fridge.... then dust w/ cocoa powder ..and press the chocolates in gently..
I think you could use your favorite mousse type filling..my daughter makes and excellent one with Silken Tofu..It would sit well in this also..
If you need any help in translating Vibi's(La Casserole Carrée's ) recipe just ask..
Take the time to browse through her blog..I think last year I spent a whole afternoon just admiring.
It takes your breath away if you are a Foodie..Plus the content..material..is always interesting..Thank you Vibi..
Keeper dessert..~If I was in California..there would be one on my friends doorstep..as a yay!!!!!!It would be the perfect dessert for her and her huband:)
