Method

For the peanut mouse (prepare ahead)

1. Warm the peanut butter and milk together, add the softened gelatine, then set aside to cool.

Pour into silicone moulds, freeze for 6 hours.

For The Salted Caramel Ganache

1. Dry caramelise the sugar. When a golden colour is achieved, add the butter and cocoa butter.

2. Warm the cream and glucose together in a separate pan, then add the caramel mix. Squeeze the gelatine to remove any excess water and add to the pan. Slowly add the chocolate over a very low heat. Season with salt. Blend to emulsify and leave in a cool place to set.

For The Gianduja

1. Melt the chocolate and paste together over a bain marie until smooth. Leave to set.

For The Feuilletine Base

1. Heat the chocolate and gianduja to 45ºC, add praline and cool to 38ºC.

2. Add the butter and mix to emulsify. Once mixed, combine with the hazelnuts and walnuts before adding the wafers and mixing until fully incorporated.

3. Pour the mixture onto parchment paper and place another sheet on top. Roll to a thickness of 3mm, then allow to set in a cool place.

 4. When set, cut into rectangles 5mm bigger all round than the peanut mousse moulds.

To Serve

1. Place the feuilletine base on a large plate and add the peanut mousse on top.

2. Pipe the caramel ganache on top of the mousse.

3. Garnish with tempered chocolate and dust with finely grated white chocolate.
