Holiday Inspired Bonbons by Melissa Coppel

The warming flavors of our favorite holidays shouldn’t be a once-a-year thing.

Building on pumpkin pie, eggnog, and pecan pie, Chef Melissa brings you three chocolate treats (two molded bonbons, and one chocolate bar) that perfectly capture the essence of Fall and Winter.

Whether you’re starting to plan your seasonal collections now or want your customers to experience the sweet flavors of American Thanksgiving and Christmas, these bonbons are the perfect ace up your sleeve.

Chef Melissa’s Pumpkin Pie Molded Bonbon features three layers: a hazelnut feuilletine praliné base, a pumpkin spice ganache, and a vanilla bean marshmallow. Just as spice-forward, fluffy, and crunchy as the real thing!

On the same note, the eggnog ganache plays with rum, vanilla, and cream for an uplifting bonbon that will make you wish December would come sooner. 

In the last recipe, you will assemble an all-caramel chocolate bar! Make it with caramelized chocolate, a soft caramel center, maple-caramelized pecans on top, and a wavy, marbled decoration. Trust us, it will hypnotize anyone who sees it into trying it!

By the end of this class, you will know how to:

-Make thin, glossy shells.
-Pre-crystallize your cocoa butter colors.
-Spray your shells to perfection. Make a purple and green spray decoration for the Pumpkin Pie bonbon, and a soft, milky-blackberry color for the Eggnog piece.
-Close your molds.
-Make chocolate bars with gooey fillings like caramel.
-Use a marble decoration in your chocolate bars that you can also use for your bonbons!
