These HAZELNUT SILK PETIT FOUR are a french classic with a jarOhoney twist. This was a product collaboration with Windy City Organics.

A perfect balance of 4 elements: semi-sweet dark chocolate, white chocolate, raspberries and fresh mint. The square base is a smooth, raw dark semi-sweet chocolate kissed with fresh organic mint flakes. The center is the raw HAZELNUT SILK spread mixed with just enough fine grated coconut to create a soft yet slightly chewy center. These two decadent layers are then balanced out with the slightly tart and vibrant fresh raspberry puree.Then we finish this symphony with chiffonade organic mint. ARE YOU DROOLING YET? Well to let you know it DOES taste as GOOD AS IT LOOKS!

1st. Instructions:
  1. Make a double boiler with a small pot and a 4 cup Pyrex measuring cup. Place the Pyrex cup in the pot and carefully fill the pot with warm water to cover the outside of the Pyrex half way up the sides.
  2. Place on your stove top and turn on medium. Using a calibrated thermometer, heat the water to 110 degrees F, reduce the heat to simmer.
  3. In your food processor, puree your raspberries until smooth.
  4. Place on a solid tray of your dehydrator and dehydrate for 1 hour. While the puree is dehydrating, place your coconut oil in the Pyrex and warm until completely melted, add in the fine chopped mint and stir well.
  5. Allow to rest for 5 minutes. Now whisk in the maple syrup and agave syrup until smooth.
  6. Now add in the cacao powder and whisk until smooth, this is your chocolate base. Place your silicon trays on a flat surface. Whisk your chocolate mix again.
  7. Place in the bottom of each cube 2 tsp of the chocolate base, tap the bottom outside of the tray to release any air bubbles.
  8. Place in your freezer on a flat surface for 30 minutes.
2nd. Instructions:
  1. Remove the Pyrex from the double boiler, wash and dry then return the it to the double boiler and place the hazelnut spread into the cleaned Pyrex and warm it until it is smooth and creamy.
  2. Slowly add the ground coconut and blend well; this is your spread mix.
  3. Remove the silicon trays from the freezer and place on a flat surface. Place 1 tsp of the spread mix on top of the chocolate base.
  4. Gently pack the spread mix to the corners and in an even layer then return the silicon trays to the freezer on a flat surface for 30 minutes.
  5. Remove your processed raspberry puree from the dehydrator into a clean bowl and remove your silicon trays from the freezer and place on a flat surface.
  6. Place 3/4 teaspoon of the raspberry puree in each cube, this will fill the cube almost to the top of the form.
  7. Gently tap the outside of the tray to release any air bubbles and top each evenly with a small pinch of pink salt then return the silicon trays to the freezer and freeze for 2 hours.
  8. Gently remove the frozen confection from the trays and place on a flat tray raspberry side up then cover and freeze overnight (8 to 10 hours).
  9. When you are ready to serve: remove the confections from the freezer, place on your display dish or serving dishes and evenly garnish with the chiffonade mint.
  10. Allow to defrost for 5 minutes and serve. BON APPETIT!

Note: Chef's Tip: I used square silicon ice trays I found at my local kitchen gadget store. These make the petit four into the classic shape and they are easy to work with and since I used these trays, the recipe amounts will reflect this.

Helpful Equipment:

  • 4 cup Pyrex measuring cup
  • Small pot (Pyrex fits into it easily)
  • Calibrated thermometer
  • 2 square silicon ice cup trays, 15 cube capacity each

Chef: 

I have been a chef and photographer for many years now. Food has always been a passion of mine. Whether it is at the farm, at the market, or being served at the family’s table, food should be fresh and vibrant. I believe that just because it is healthy, there is no reason why our taste buds should not dance. I recently just published my first book “live eat learn RAW”, this is going to be one of many. In search of a quiet healthy life, I have found a rustic and simple way to live, eat, learn; I now want to share that way with you…
