Create chocolate bars with mint, nougat, caramel, or rum raisin and hazelnut. Put a chocolate pencil inside a kid’s lunch bag as a surprise. Celebrate with a Champagne or Dark Rum Truffle; it’s the perfect sweet for any special occasion. Make the holidays merry and bright with a Christmas log. Delight guests with something unusual and awe-inspiring like a Palet d’or, a creamy disc covered in shiny gold leaf.

And to help anyone, even beginners, handle all the necessary techniques, master baker Elie Tarrab gives easy-to-follow instructions on melting and tempering, crystallization, dipping and enrobing, molding, and creating a hollow figurine.
