What I want to do are make little chocolate wraparounds like a tear drop shape and fill them with a mousse and top with a raspberry puree!
Boy and I glad I solicited ya'll for info!!! There really is a never ending supply of expertise and advice on here!
Thank you so much!!!
you cannot do this free hand, I will help you...you need to have the basic shape that you need, the tear drop, then you cut the acetate strips, lay them on parchment paper and take your tempered chocolate and with an offset spatula you 'swipe' the strips, pick them up and line the molds.
freeze, then you take your mousse and fill, freeze that part, then add the puree, then freeze that also.
The best mold for this is the flexi molds,
If you don't have them use the tear drops without the bottoms, line them up on a parchment lined cookie sheet or sheet pan. Freeze, when they are SOLID, you can push them out, remove the strip and you have your chocolate wrapped tear drop!
put them back in the freezer till you need them.
I hope this helps!
