Component 1

Place a frame of 8 mm thickness.
Pre-crystallize the ganache at 34°C and frame.
Let it set at 10°C until solid enough. Remove the frame and guitar sheet.
Cut at 15x38 mm size, using a guitar cutter.
Enrobe with the crystallized Evocao™ chocolate.
Decorate with the caramelized cocoa nib sticks.

Component 2
Once the caramelized nibs are cooked, spread out on a Silpat to cool down.
Break them so they fall apart in individual pieces of caramelized nibs. Store them dry.

Component 3
Spread out between 2 guitar sheets using a rolling pin.
Remove the upper guitar sheet directly to create an uneven texture.
Tap to flatten the chocolate and let it set.
Cut into small sticks: 5 x 35 mm.
Decorate with some green shimmer dust.
Put directly on top after enrobing as a decoration.
