Directions

  • Melt chocolate and praline paste in a double boiler over medium heat. Stir well to combine.Use an immersion blender to smooth out any lumps. Add brittle and cornflakes and stir well until coated.
  • Cut the acetate sheet in half, lengthwise. Line the mold with one half of the acetate sheet. Reserve the other half of the acetate sheet for another use.
  • Pour the chocolate mixture into the mold and place into the refrigerator to set, approximately 4 hours.
  • When the log is firm, release the two ends with the tip of a metal spatula, and invert the log onto a tray. Gently remove the acetate sheet.
  • Cut texture sheet to the exact size needed to cover the chocolate log. Melt bittersweet chocolate, allow to cool for several minutes and spread evenly over the texture sheet. Carefully lift the texture sheet and drape over the log. Place in the refrigerator to set for about 30 minutes, and then remove the transfer sheet.
Store at room temperature.
