2 eggs
2 yolk
90 grams ground almonds
8 grams honey
8 grams corn starch
140 grams sugar
1 vanilla pods
1/2 lemon
1 orange
2 orange (juiced)
100 grams almond paste
200 grams milk chocolate
20 grams grapeseed oil
50 grams corn flakes (almonds, or coconut)


1Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C.
2In a bowl, thoroughly whisk the eggs with the ground almonds, honey, cornstarch, 90 grams of the sugar, and the seeds from the vanilla bean. You can also put these ingredients in your stand mixer with the whisk attachment and beat for about 7 to 8 minutes. Add the lemon and orange zest.
3Pour into mini silicone molds such as petit four or tarlet molds. Bake for about 8 to 10 minutes. They will brown quickly. Remove from the oven and let the cookies cool on a rack.
4In a saucepan, gently heat the juice of 2 oranges and 50 grams of sugar. Cook for about 30 minutes or until the mixture becomes more syrupy. Add the almond paste and gradually mix it into the syrup. You will eventually obtain a thick paste. Spread this paste on the cookies and place them in the freezer for at least 2 hours.
5Melt the chocolate in the microwave. Add the oil and mix.
6Divide the melted chocolate into 2 bowls. In one of them add a little bit of the crushed corn flakes. With a skewer or a dipping fork, pick up the cookies, coat them with plain chocolate and then add a little bit of the chocolate/corn flake mixture on top. Place them on a baking sheet lined with wax paper.
7Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Serve chilled.
