Working Method

  1. Choux paste
  2. Crumble
  3. Topfil fruit filling
  4. Pistachio Cream

Prepare the crumble before the choux

Mix all ingredients together to obtain a dough.
Roll down to 2 minutes and cool down.
Cut the crumble in discs that will fit on the choux.

Choux paste

Warm up the water between 50 to 60 °C.
Mix all ingredients with a paddle together, medium speed for 5 minutes.
Pipe 6 small choux side by side on a ring pattern.
Add a disc of crumble on each one.
Once baked, together they form a ring-shaped choux; a twist on the classic Paris Brest.
Bake for the first 5 minutes with closed damper, then open damper for 30 to 45 minutes depending of the size of the choux.


Mix the Cremyvit and water together with a whisk for 3 mm.
Let the cream rest for 5 minutes before adding the Praline Pistache and the creamy butter (room temperature), re-start the mixer and whip to a light texture.

Jelly decoration

Bring water and Harmony to boil.
Add Miroir, Topfil and Classic.
Mix and poor into silicon moulds.
Freeze (-30°C).



Cut off the top of the Paris Brest, fill each choux with a different Topfil fruit filling.
Pipe the praline mousseline cream on it before putting back the top.
Sprinkle with powder sugar and decorate with chocolate.
