Splash white and yellow-coloured cocoa butter into the praline moulds. Before it crystallises, treat the moulds with compressed air to smear out the colours. Leave the cocoa butter to crystallise and mould the pralines with Callebaut® dark chocolate of your choice. Leave to crystallise again and fill the bottom of the moulds with a layer of apricot vanilla jelly, followed by a layer of Sao Thomé ganache. Seal the moulds with the same Callebaut® dark chocolate you used to create them.
