  • 50g pistachios, roughly chopped

HERE'S HOW IT'S DONE...

  • 1

    Melt the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl in 30 second bursts. When it has just a few solid chunks left, take it out and give it a good stir, the rest will melt from the residual heat.

    When it’’s cool enough to handle, tip the chocolate onto a tray lined with grease-proof paper and spread to the edges with a palette knife or spatula.

    Sprinkle on the chopped pistachios, again aiming for an even spread. If it looks like they’’re not sinking in, tap the tray on the counter a couple of times to help them settle in.
