Cacao Chantilly

Uses: Choux, petits gateaux, entremets, verrines, etc.

Tips: Heating up a fifth of the cream to dissolve the cacao powder and sugar ensures a homogeneous chantilly.

What is the best cocoa powder? Légère 1%

Why? This defatted cacao powder delivers a deep and intense chocolate taste to your chantilly witn nice red brown hues. Scientific recommendations: The very low content of cocoa butter in the Légère 1% powder helps keep the structure of the chantilly compared to a standard cacao powder.
