Dark lactose free chocolate crémeux

How to make the perfect chocolate crémeux? Dark chocolate crémeux or chocolate cream is a smooth, dense pastry creamy. You could compare it to a velvet-like creamy custard with a rich and intense chocolate taste – firm enough to hold its shape in a layered dessert or to be piped on top. For the perfect taste and texture, we recommend using Finest Belgian Chocolate with a higher cocoa percentage or pronounced flavour. Consider using one of the Single Origin chocolates if you're looking for more aromatic cocoa flavour notes. And as always for pastry recipes, we recommend using the standard fluidity, indicated with 3drops on the packaging.
