1 Prepare 4 molds with twenty-four 0.4 oz/11 g cavities or 3 molds with thirty-two 0.4 oz/11 g cavities with colored cocoa butter or couverture as desired.
2 Cast the molds with the white couverture.
3 In a medium pot, combine the cream, passion fruit puree, sugar, and lemon juice and bring to a boil over medium heat.
4 Combine the invert sugar and milk and dark couvertures. Pour the hot cream mixture over the couverture mixture, and set aside undisturbed for 1 minute.
5 Using a spatula, stir in small circles starting in the center of the bowl, then gradually in wider circles, until you get a shiny consistency.
6 Cool to 92&F/33.3&C. Blend in the butter using an immersion blender. Cover with plastic wrap and let cool to 88&F/31.1&C.
7 When the mixture reaches the proper temperature, place in a pastry bag with a small hole cut in the tip and pipe into the prepared molds. Let set overnight at room temperature.
8 Once the ganache has completely set, cap with the white couverture. Place in the refrigerator for 3 to 5 minutes to set.
9 Tap the molds on the table to release the chocolates.
10 Store in an airtight container at 57& to 61&F/13.9& to 16.1&C in a dark, dry place.
1 Using an airbrush, spray the molds with yellow cocoa butter.
2 Spray the molds with red cocoa butter.
