Today I tried some different molding techniques. I made the shells yesterday, today I filled them, not as full as usual. My thought was to close the molds with extra chocolate and then cover the wet chocolate with caramelized hazelnuts. It turned out ok, but not as spectacular as I had hoped.
My other experiment was with the wiping of cocoa butter in the molds. I first used aztec orange and came back with white. I think I like the look, but need to work some more on technique.
