Heat cream, glucose, and buckthorn until boiling and add the chocolate. Make an emulsion with a blender. At 35 °C add butter.


To create the surface inspired from rocks, spray the shape and some plastic with cocoa butter and then afterwards sprinkle with black, grey and white cocoa butter. At the end spray it once again with the grey cocoa butter. Mold the shell from Saint-Domingue chocolate (70%) (Cacao Barry). Fill in the vanilla caramel followed by the sesame crunch. Then fill in the buckthorn ganache and finish with the Saint-Domingue chocolate and place the plastic with the sprinkled cocoa butter on top to create a beautiful bottom of the molded chocolate.
