How It's Made
4 cups almond milk
1/4 cup of maple syrup
1/4 cup of carob powder
1/4 cup of hazelnut butter
1 teaspoon of agar-agar
1 tablespoon of vanilla essence
A pinch of sea salt
1/4 cup of Hazelnuts
To drizzle on nuts, some maple syrup
Pour the almond milk in a saucepan. Using a whisk add in the agar agar, vanilla extract, maple syrup and carob powder.
Bring to a boil while constantly whisking so the mixture thickens.
Remove from heat, add the hazelnut butter and salt. Mix and pour immediately in small ramekins.
Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
Place the hazelnuts on a parchment paper covered baking sheet and drizzle with maple syrup. Toss well so they are evenly coated. Caramelize in the oven at 300°F for 15 minutes. Let cool, then chop them in large pieces.
Top the mousse off with the caramelized hazelnuts.
