  • 400g milk couverture, chopped into small pieces (14oz)
  • 2 extra couverture pieces

Instructions

  1. Heat the raspberries and sugar over medium high heat until cooked down and bubbling. Then puree and pass through a sieve.
  2. Chop the white couverture into small pieces.
  3. In a small sauce pan, bring the raspberry puree and and heavy cream to a boil. Remove from heat and add in the white couverture. Stir until the chocolate has dissolved completely. Let the mixture cool completely.
  4. Then fill into the capsules and let them set for 1 hour.
  5. In a double boiler, bring a small amount of water to a boil and then remove from heat. Add in 2/3 of the couverture and melt stirring constantly until it reaches 48°C or 118°F (measure with a candy thermometer).Remove from the stove top and slowly add in the other 1/3,stirring until it has dissolved. Then add two larger pieces of couverture and continue stirring until the thermometer registers 28°C or 82°F. Remove the couverture pieces and place the melted chocolate back onto the stove top and heat until it reaches 31-32°C or 88-89°F. You want to keep the temperature consistent during the dipping process.

  7. Then using a fork, dip the hollow capsules into the tempered couverture and set onto a sheet fitted with parchment paper. Drizzle with a bit of ground freeze dried raspberries before the chocolate sets.
