Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
300g good-quality milk cooking chocolate
1 Blackcurrant marshmallows, follow the variation to make plain marshmallow
1 quantity plain marshmallow, see note

Equipment

Quantity Ingredient
teddy-shaped silicone moulds
sugar thermometer
pastry brush

Method

  1. Preparing the chocolate

    Temper the chocolate. Place two-thirds of the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water, making sure the base of the bowl does not touch the water. Once the chocolate reaches its correct melting temperature, take the bowl off the saucepan, add the remaining chocolate and combine with a spatula.
  2. The chocolate will melt and lower the temperature of the mixture to the cooling temperature. Finally, reheat the chocolate to its using temperature. To check the temper of the chocolate, dip the point of a knife into it — the chocolate should set quickly and evenly at room temperature. When working with chocolate, make sure you keep it at using temperature or you run the risk of losing the chocolate’s temper.
  3. Using a pastry brush, coat each teddy bear mould with chocolate. Set aside in the refrigerator to harden.
  4. Filling the teddy bears

    Once you have made the plain marshmallow, allow to cool to 26°C, then use it to fill the moulds. Set aside for 1 hour in the refrigerator to completely cool the marshmallow.
  5. Coating the teddy bears

    Cover the back of the teddies by applying a final coat of chocolate with a spatula — you will need to reheat the chocolate before using. Set aside for 1 hour before carefully removing the chocolate from the moulds.
