Dark glazing


Mix the first five ingredients and cook them at 105°C. Filter and add the gelatine at 60°C (soften the gelatine sheets in cold water first). Stir slowly until the gelatine is completely dissolved. Refrigerate overnight and use the next day after heating up to 32-36°C.

Final Brix: 70.34°

Apply at 28°C on sweet ice cream. It is very fluid and glossy, and has a rounded cocoa taste.
