Ruby chocolate heart

Some time ago, I was given a bar of exquisit ruby chocolate. After having tried the tiniest piece, I felt the urge to turn this rare variety of chocolate into something special. And for Valentine’s Day, I finally executed my plan: a complex ruby chocolate mousse accompanied by a bitter dark chocolate mousse, sweet honey cream and tart cranberries. In the shape of a heart. Naturally ♥️

Prepare the ruby and dark chocolate mousses by pouring equal parts of hot heavy cream over finely chopped chocolate. Stir until the chocolate is dissolved, allow to cool completely and then whip until fluffy.

For the honey cream, mix heavy cream with some acacia honey and whip until fluffy.

Assemble by sprinkling a heart of freeze-dried cranberry powder (for this purpose, I used a paper template). Pipe out dollops of mousse and cream. Decorate with ruby chocolate leaves (instructions in an old blog post, just replace the dark chocolate with ruby chocolate) and almonds dipped in ruby chocolate and sprinkled with freeze-dried cranberry powder.

Happy Valentine’s Day❣️
