Component 1Caramel heart

250 g fresh fat cream
70 g sugar
50 g butter
65 g glucose
10 g salt
1 g vanilla
t.t White Chocolate truffle shells

Heat the cold fresh fat cream, butter, sugar, salt and vanilla together. Bring to the boil and place to one side. Caramelise the sugar, adding it slowly into the saucepan, adding more once it melts. Once the caramel takes a golden colour, pour the liquid prepared beforehand over the top. Continue to pour the second part. Wait for it to boil and then remove from the heat. Leave it to chill or place in the cooler covered by some cling film.
Using a sac à poche, fill the white truffle shells with the chilled caramel. Place in the chiller and then place into the centre of the soufflè.
