Beat - by Massimo Carnio

The Beat chocolate mould, designed in collaboration with the World Champion Massimo Carnio, was inspired by the heartbeat of humans, to highlight how behind every chocolatier beats a heart made of passion and true emotions.

Beat is one of the VIP line praline, for which Massimo Carnio is ambassador together with other master chocolatiers on the international scene.

"BEAT" - Recipe by Massimo Carnio

Rose Drop


Rose infusion 365 g

Rose essence 10 drops

Sugar 80 g

Yellow pectin 8 g

Trehalose 260 g

Sorbitol powder 70 g

Glucose syrup 40DE 130 g

Invert sugar 80 g

Citric acid 50/50 7g


Boil 500g of water and infuse 5g of rose petals in it for 5/8 minutes. Make 365g for the recipe. Place the still-warm rose infusion and the pectin previously mixed with the sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to the boil and gradually add the trehalose, sorbitol, glucose syrup and invert sugar. Reach 75°brix or 103/104°C. Off the hob, add the citric acid and finally the rose essence.

Cassis Ganache


Cassis puree 215 g

Sorbitol powder 70 g

Fresh cream 65 g

Dextrose 35 g

Invert sugar 25 g

Milk coating 39% 540 g

Cocoa butter 50 g


In a jug, heat the liquids together with the sugars and bring everything to 40°C. Melt the couverture and cocoa butter by heating them to 35°C and combine them. Mix slowly for one minute using a cutter or a minipimer. Dress in the moulds at 30°C.

Decoration and filling:

Fill the hollow of the heart with dark chocolate, taking care not to exceed the level of the heart. Chill in the fridge for a few minutes until crystallised. Spray the mould inside with a tempered chocolate mass made of 50% cocoa butter, 50% dark chocolate 55% and a few drops of fat-soluble black colour. Immediately after chabloning quickly demould the now crystallised hearts where the clean heart will be visible without any decoration. Spray the heart inside first with the red fat-soluble colour tempered cocoa butter and then with the metallic gold colour. Allow the colour to cream and crystallise and then fill the moulds with chocolate for an initial layering. Leave about a 1 mm layer. Then fill with the rose drop and cassis ganache, taking care to leave a millimetre of space for the chocolate to close.
