Cheers to the joy of patisserie!
The ”Trois Chocolats”, also known as Triple Chocolate Cake, is a delectable dessert that has gained popularity over the years.
Typically, the cake consists of three layers of mousse, each made with a different type of chocolate: dark chocolate, milk chocolate, and white chocolate. Additional chocolate elements such as chocolate cake layers or a chocolate glaze are sometimes added to enhance the overall flavor and texture.
Mousse itself is a classic French dessert with a history dating back several centuries. The Swiss Chef pâtissier Charles Fazi is credited for creating the simplest form of mousse, consisting of whipped egg whites and chocolate, as a treat for Louis XVI.
The term "Chocolate mousse" was later coined by Chef pâtissier Menon in 1755, also used to describe the foam atop a chocolate drink. Over time, the recipe evolved to include egg yolks, cream, and sugar, as seen in the 1820 recipe book ‘Cuisinier Royal’. Chocolate mousse itself gained popularity in the early 20th century when chocolate became more accessible and widely used in desserts.
The Trois Chocolats takes the concept of chocolate mousse to the next level by featuring three layers of mousse made from different types of chocolate. This variation adds depth and complexity to the dessert, appealing to chocolate enthusiasts with different preferences. The Trois Chocolats has become a favorite dessert in many countries worldwide by its rich, velvety texture and intense chocolate flavor.
Introducing our extraordinary creation, the Snowman-inspired Trois Chocolats just in time for the holiday season. In this version, we have added a melting salted caramel center, creating a unique and indulgent taste and texture experience. With each bite, your customers will savor the rich layers of dark chocolate, milk chocolate, and white chocolate mousse, complemented by the luscious caramel filling that oozes out. The enchanting blend of flavors and the whimsical snowman design make this cake an unforgettable centerpiece for your customers’ festive celebrations. Enjoy the holidays with this creative snowman!
At Puratos, we believe that customers can also indulge during the holiday season with as little impact on their health as possible. We've successfully improved the nutritional profile focusing on reducing the sugar content by 30% without compromising on taste. To achieve this, we have not only used our Sugar Reduced alternatives (Cake Mixes, Chocolate, Non Dairy whippable cream alternatives), but we have also added more fruit using our Topfil Finest Cherry 70%. Rest assured, our healthier version of the Trois Chocolats maintains its moist and flavorful base that will undoubtedly delight your customers taste buds.
In line with our Taste Tomorrow research results, we know that a lot of consumers are mindful of the impact the food they eat has on the planet and on animal wellbeing.
This more sustainable version of the classic “Trois Chocolats” focuses on plant-based cake alternatives and only uses Cacao-Trace chocolate, which ensures a good quality of life for cocoa farmers, while focusing on great-tasting chocolate that is appreciated by chocolate-lovers throughout the world. Let your customers indulge in this delicious take on the “Trois Chocolats”, and be sure to let them know about the steps you are taking towards creating patisserie in a more sustainable way.
