Create Beautiful Soft Centred Chocolates 

Soft centres are a great way to bring more colour, flavour and texture to your chocolates.

This class is all about that beautiful inside! Whether that be a matcha caramel, salted almond praline or hazelnut ganache… the possibilities are truly endless once you learn my base recipes and techniques.

If you like making chocolates, you’re gonna love this class.

Soft Centres is a 1.5 – 2 hour livestream class where you’ll learn how to make 3 different base fillings and centres for your hand or mould formed chocolates.

As always, my tried and true base recipes will give you a solid starting point and provide a great canvas for creating your own unique chocolates.

What you’ll learn

Enrobing / Dipping

The Rochers and Pralines are dipped in chocolate, also referred to as Enrobing. If you are new to this process, you’ll learn all about it. Most importantly how to keep your chocolate in temper during a long enrobing session, how to avoid excess chocolate (chocolate feet) and ways to garnish your chocolates so they stand out!

Praline 

Super versatile and easy to make. Pralines can be formed by hand, in a silicone mould or piped into a chocolate shell. In this class we’ll use a silicone mould to set the strawberry white chocolate praline, coat it in white chocolate and finish them in shimmery ‘pebbles’.

Crispy Chocolate Rochers  

These are so good and, best of all, they’re very easy to make. You can use virtually anything crispy (and it’ll hold it’s texture in this mix) to make these little nuggets. As seen on this page, we’ll be making Crispy Peppermint Dark Chocolate Nuggets. We’ll also talk about other crispy stuff you can use to suit your taste – sky’s the limit on these bad boys!

Amy’s Signature Ganache 

Ganache is one of those chocolate cornerstones, but one that can be tricky to get right. My signature ganache is easy to make and very versatile. Think Chunky Peanut Butter, Blueberry Coconut, Star Anise & Espresso, Smoked Chocolate, Almond & Maca and on and on. In this class we’ll be using a professional chocolate mould to create thin chocolate shells, fill them with ganache and cap the mould. Shelling is a great technique to learn, and hone, if you aspire to make bonbons.

Working in the industry and the huge surge in food intolerances, allergies and required diets, with Amy’s help I can face any challenge with a grin and think, “What would Amy do?”
