Recipe for the Chocolite Family Wreath
by Miss Maggie’s Kitchen

The festive season is nearly upon us and with it, plenty of feasts packed with dishes each one as original as the others. Family traditions, first attempts, culinary discoveries: it’s all good when it comes to making our festive spreads as delicious and surprising as possible. The Socialite Family would like to do their little bit to help too. So we’re offering you the chance to try new flavours and bold blends of textures. For the occasion, we’ve got together with Miss Maggie’s Kitchen – alias Héloïse Brion – a former communicator who has transformed herself into the queen of baking. This unsurpassed cook brought us some sweet treats for our office tea-break and soon left with her tote bag full to bursting with Chocolite Family cream. Creations prepared in partnership with the Parisian company Le Furet Tanrade, local master confectioner with a love of quality products and artisanal methods. Whether dark, milk or white, our sweet treats have been given pride of place in the expert hands of Miss Maggie’s Kitchen. With no further ado, here are the secrets – in pictures and step by step! – to making our Chocolite Family Wreath. A crown that’s as lovely to look at as it is to eat. Bon appétit!

1 & 2. Pre-heat the oven to 130° (fan-assisted). In a large bowl, whisk the egg whites. Once they are stiff, gradually add the sugar, beating continuously for 7 to 8 minutes. Add the white vinegar and beat for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the cornflour and beat again for 2 to 3 minutes. The mixture should be stiff and glossy.

3. Melt the Chocolite Family dark chocolate spread in a bain marie and put aside. Put a third of the egg whites in another bowl, add the peppermint extract, beat for 3 minutes and put aside.

4. On baking parchment, use a plate or a bowl to draw a large circle, then draw a smaller circle in the centre of the large circle (using a bowl). Turn the sheet over and put it on a baking tray, putting a little meringue mixture on the four corners on the underside of the paper.

5. Sprinkle the remaining two thirds of the egg whites with praline, then using a spoon, drizzle some Chocolite Family dark chocolate spread on top. Do not mix. Using a tablespoon, start to create the shape of the crown, following the traced design. Then, when necessary, sprinkle the egg whites again with praline and drizzle some more spread until all the egg whites in this container are covered. Place each heap of meringue side by side – they should just touch each other (they will expand when cooked). Then gently use the handle of a teaspoon to make small swirls – this will create pretty patterns in the chocolate.

6. You can now add the peppermint-flavoured egg whites on top of each heap of meringue. Remember that you’ve got less mixture and that you need to have enough to go all the way round the crown!

7. Sprinkle with praline and bake for 75 to 90 minutes – it depends on the oven. Turn off the oven, leave the crown inside (for 40 minutes) with the door ajar.

8. Once the crown has cooled completely, take it out of the oven, very gently peel off the paper and put it on the presentation dish. It will be firm on the outside and gooey on the inside, so it will be fragile. However, if it should crack slightly, you can hide any cracks with the decoration – no-one will know!

9. To decorate it, use a bain marie to melt Chocolite Family milk chocolate pots and Chocolite Family white chocolate pots (if necessary, reheat the remains of the Chocolite Family dark chocolate spread). Using a spoon, drizzle a bit of each over the whole crown.

10. Sprinkle with crushed hazelnuts and add small fir and holly branches all over!
