White chocolate and soursop in bamboo charcoal profiteroles

The innards of a cocoa pod inspired me to create crunchy bamboo charcoal profiteroles with a white chocolate and soursop filling. The silky smooth texture of the chocolate, and the slightly acidic taste of soursop and passion fruit represent the taste and texture of cocoa pulp.
