Chocomel: Chocolate and caramel verrins

 Small, is what I like my dessert to be, ^^, but the small size can be big in flavor.


This time it came in a glass, I got the idea after eating the lunch buffet with my friend, but only the chocolate mousse is a bit boring. So I add more flavor into the verrins, the flavor that will accompany the chocolate well "Caramel".
The bottom of the glass is caramel bavarois, the creamy and lovely burnt sugar flavor, then you will face the bitter taste of the dark chocolate, the whipped cream will give this verrins creamy feeling and because we don't add sugar here, the taste is so pure. The last part is the topping, it's the time you have to make the decision, with cocoa nibs, your verrins will be suitable for chocolate lover and grown up, but if you love your verrins to be children friendly, or suitable for everyone, white chocolate will be your choice.
I think both of them are delicious, but if you ask me, I go for the cocoa nibs ^^, you know that I'm the chocoholic, haha.
Serving it with hot tea is great, esp. black tea.
