  • Kaori’s Easy Recipe: Learn to Make a Pompompurin Cookie Shot

    10.February.2019 | FEATURES / FOOD

    With just a small bit of ingenuity, turn everyday food into something cute using Kaori’s easy recipe! With a few simple ideas, an ordinary recipe magically transforms into a cute dish.

     

    In this recipe you’ll learn how to make a “Pompompurin Cookie Shot,” perfect for Valentine’s Day! It may look difficult but I have made it so it’s nice and easy to make!

     

    1: Ingredients/Equipment

    2 glasses or purin cups

    40g unsalted butter or margarine

    75g flour

    20g sugar

    1 cup milk

    Chocolate

     

    2:

    ①Knead together the unsalted butter, flour and sugar.

    ②Add the milk in little by little while kneading. Knead until the it has a consistency moister than regular cookie dough.

    ③Coat one glass with a little oil or butter.

    ④Affix the dough from step ② around the inside of the glass as shown in the photo below.

    ✩It’s best to make your dough a little softer than regular cookie dough to prevent cracks from forming.

    ✩Press the batter firmly to ensure air doesn’t get into it. If you don’t do this then the batter will split.

    ⑤Place aluminium foil into the centre of the dough to stop it from expanding when baking.

    ⑥Shape a cup handle and Pompompurin’s ears with leftover dough from step ④.

    ✩Bake for approximately 10-minutes at 190° with the handle and ears. Remove the handle and ears and bake the cup for a further 5-10 minutes.

    3: Melt the chocolate over a bain marie.

    4: Remove the aluminium ball and once the cup has cooled remove the cookie and smear in the chocolate.

    ✩It’s possible to remove the baked cookie smoothly by coating with butter but it will make it break easily so ensure to do it carefully.

    The inside of the cookie will look a little uneven after removing the aluminium ball but you won’t be able to see it after adding the chocolate.

    Once completely cooled use the leftover chocolate to draw on Pompompurin’s facial features and use it to attach the handle and ears. After attaching the handle and ears hold them in place for a moment for the chocolate to  harden. You can make a hat from the remaining chocolate but I made one from sliced chocolate.

    All done!

    1: Ingredients

    Chocolate        50g

    Gelatin               5g

    Fresh cream  180g

    Sugar-free cocoa powder    1 table spoon

    Sugar             2 table spoons

     

    2:

    Put all the ingredients into a pot and stir while cold. Heat and melt the chocolate, being careful not to boil it.  Add 1 tablespoon of water to the gelatin until it becomes soft and then add to the mixture and stir until dissolved.

    ☆Mix well while still cold, otherwise the powder will go lumpy.

     

     

    3:

    From step 2, filter the mix after the gelatin has dissolved.

     

    4:

    Pour the mixture from step 3 to a vat, let it cool down a bit and then refrigerate until firm.

    5:

    Slice a yellow peach to make Purin, by drawing the eyes, nose, and hat with chocolate.

    ☆Wipe any syrup off from the surface of the yellow peach with kitchen paper, and then draw the parts.

    Ears are connected to the face when the syrup dries, however you can also use some pasta to make it stronger.

     

    6:

    Put some cereal, whip cream, yellow peach and chocolate mousse of your choice in a cup, then place Purin on the top and you are done!

     

    Just a little bit of chocolate mousse makes the parfait simply scrumptious! The taste of yellow peach and crunchy cereal makes for a good combination♡

  • BAKE CHEESE TART & Dandelion Chocolate Collaborate on Valentine’s Chocolate Cheese Tart

    14.January.2019 | FOOD

    BAKE CHEESE TART has teamed up with Dandelion Chocolate―the bean-to-bar chocolate makers from San Francisco―to release the new Baked Chocolate Cheese Tart. It will be available from January 11 to February 14 just in time for the Valentine’s season.

    The tart is made with cocoa beans farmed in Guatemala and carefully selected by Dandelion Chocolate. The cocoa beans are heated more thoroughly to the core than usual and carefully roasted to leave a strong taste on the palate like that of brandy. In one bite your taste buds are treated to an amalgamation of cheese mousse and rich caramel with an aftertaste of cocoa beans that have a fruity sourness to them. The lingering aftertaste is nuanced like red wine.

    The cream cheese used in the cheese mousse is an original blend that mainly uses cream cheese made in Hokkaido which offers unique flavour and texture. It is mixed with Dandelion Chocolate’s ganache. The cookie batter is laced with cookie powder for added crunch. The tart is fried once like this and again with the mousse. This double fry technique gives the tart its distinct deliciousness.

    Dandelion Chocolate taste-tested this tart countless times before putting on the market. The climate during the cocoa bean farming and gathering changed the taste and fragrance of the beans. Only the best beans are used in the baking process.

    BAKE CHEESE TART are holding a Valentine’s promotion with the concept “From hands to hands” in line with the release of the Baked Chocolate Cheese Tart. Limited edition packaging will be available with designs inspired by the manual labour of those people around the world that made this tart possible. Small gift boxes will also be available.
