Serving Size: 1
Preparation Time: 2 hours
Hawaiian Vintage Kea'au Chocolate
3 large egg yolk
1/3 cup sugar
3 ounces coconut milk
1 1/2 tablespoons gelatin
2 cups heavy cream
1/8 cup coconut flakes
1 pint fresh strawberries -- sliced
1 banana -- peeled and sliced
1/4 papaya -- peeled and sliced
1 kiwi fruit -- peeled and sliced
2 tablespoons macadamia nut chips -- toasted
2 tablespoons cocoa powder -- for dusting
2 tablespoons powdered sugar -- for dusting
2 tablespoons raspberry coulis
2 tablespoons dry ice chip
- Melt chocolate
in double boiler.
- Take a
6" funnel and cover with plastic wrap. Paint funnel with
chocolate, thin even coats are best. Place in freezer for 5
minutes or just until set. Repeat process two more times. Carefully
remove chocolate from funnel. Peel plastic wrap from chocolate,
refrigerate until ready to use.
- Beat egg
yolks with half the sugar until bright yellow and satiny.
- Heat coconut
milk until warm, add gelatin and stir until dissolved, add coconut
flakes. Fold in egg mixture.
- Whip cream
with remainder of sugar and beat until stiff. Fold into coconut
mixture and refrigerate until set.
- To assemble
volcano, place mousse on plate. Take a small cup and fill with
warm water (the hotter the water, the more smoke, but the faster
the chocolate will melt), assemble cut fruit and nuts around
mousse. Add dry ice chip to water, place chocolate shell over,
sprinkle shell with cocoa, sprinkle with powdered sugar, and
squirt raspberry coulis (lava) around plate. Serve immediately.
