Harvest snacking shells

“Using the Callebaut Callets™ shape as inspiration for the moulds, I’ve created a special shaped snack with a maximum of fruity flavours. A lychee milk chocolate ganache, a pitaya fruit paste, and a compote of green apple, apricot and lime zest all add up to a balanced sweetness that I think is typical of cocoa pulp.”
