Daniel Executive Pastry Chef Sandro Micheli's take on a candy bar

I recently found this video we shot of Daniel Executive Pastry Chef Sandro Micheli at the Top 10  Pastry Chef Award ceremony.  This chocolate-centric plate was one of my favorite pastries of the night.  It looks deceivingly involved although it looks simple.  He says it was inspired by a childhood candy bar memory.  Enjoy!

This year’s Top 10 event was a real blast.  Here’s a short video we made that I feel really captures the vibe. It features some of the awardees (and their desserts!)  There are also some surprise celebrity appearances–turn up the volume and enjoy!
