1 jar ChoCoffee Hot Ganache
2 cups whipping cream


  1. Cut oranges into small pieces. Place on 16 spoons. Sprinkle with fleur de sel.
  2. Place a test tube in each of the eight shot glasses and fill with hot tap water. Insert straw once emulsion has softened.
  3. Bring cream to a boil.
  4. Pour hot cream over ganache powder and blend to frothy with immersion blender.
  5. Pour into eight shot glasses and serve immediately.

To  Serve
