Unmold the small ruby chocolate mousse balls and press them inside the coconut mousse.
Freeze for at least four hours.

Crumble

50 g flour
50 g ground coconut
50 g sugar
75 g cold butter, in small pieces

Knead all ingredients by hand until everything is just combined.
Put crumbles on a baking tray with baking paper.
Bake at 175°C for approx. 18 minutes.
Crush until you have nice crumbles.

Cocoa butter layer

Ingredients

130 g cocoa butter
130 g white couverture
x Silver food colouring

Melt both ingredients separately in microwave or over a bain-marie.
Mix everything together and make sure it’s 45 degrees.
Dip the frozen hemispheres into the cocoa butter.
Let it set (takes a few seconds) and place it on your plate.

Garnishing

I added some pineapple leaves to the stone, but you can also make them out of green colored chocolate. Add some ground coconut, crumbles, mango cubes and you’re done.
