  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 dark couverture.
  3. In a medium pot, combine the cream, curry powder, passion puree, mango puree, and coconut puree and bring to a boil over medium heat.
  4. Combine the chopped milk couverture and invert sugar. Pour the hot 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, to make an emulsion.
  6. Cool the ganache to 94°F/34.5°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. Cool for 5 minutes in the refrigerator. Let set overnight at room temperature.
  8. Once the ganache has completely set, cap with the dark 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.
