Cook the sugar, glucose and water to 185°C/365°F. Deglaze with the crushed lemon puree.

Cook again to 103°C/217°F, remove from the heat and allow the temperature to drop to 75-80°C/167-176°F before making an emulsion over the melted Opalys couverture.

At 35°C/95°F, add the oil or ghee, mix with a hand held blender and half fill the round hollow forms.

Pipe into the hollow forms on top of the lemon ganache to fill them completely.

Melt the couverture and the cocoa butter at 50°C/122°F.



Temper the coating mixture by following the same temperature curves as for the Opalys couverture.

Seal the round hollow forms and allow to crystallize.

Using a truffle fork, dip the filled forms into colored coating mixture then roll them around in a shallow pan.
