Berries such as blackcurrant and juniper are thought to have superpowers. True or not, they at least have super flavours that match chocolate very well. In this recipe, they're used to create a sophisticated and well-balanced ganache that even reveals coffee flavours. To soften the taste and make it accessible to a wide audience, it is combined with a hazelnut praline filling that's not too sweet to release the fruity flavours.
