Fairy Bread Bar



You can judge this Australian snack all you want, but how can you go wrong with bread, butter and sprinkles? This is a bar I created especially for my upcoming class @savourschool  (August 3-5) in Australia. This milk chocolate bar is filled with a cinnamon butter ganache, toasted bread, and the base is loaded with sprinkles. Our photographer @modcuisine, Chris Hoover took this amazing photo.

Cinnamon Ganache Sticks


Cinnamon ganache tubes. Rolled up untempered chocolate filled with cinnamon ganache. The intention with these 8 inch long cinnamon bars was to make them look like actual cinnamon sticks. 
To accomplish this, place a few sheet pans in refrigeration.  Meanwhile, melt chocolate (dark) to 110 F. Sorted the hot melted chocolate on the cold sheet pan in a very uniform layer. Just as it begins to set, roll it up by using a sharp bench knife or sparkling knife to push it up creating an evenly shaped roll. It is filled with ganache once the chocolate has hardened completely.
