More Chocolates!

Chocolat blanc et pate d’amonde a la pistache:

Weight out and chop up the white chocolate (Santas this time – there was a sale on Christmas shaped chocolate in the posh choc shop) and melt 2/3 of it over a saucepan of water, until it reaches 40 degrees (c)

Take the chocolate off the heat and stir in the rest.  Allow it to cool to between 28 and 30 degrees and then transfer to a pouring jug

Pour some chocolate into a mold and then turn the mold to coat the outside edges.  Pour any excess back into the jug.

repeat until all the molds are coated (the chocolate will start to set quickly in the molds so doing them one at a time is important)

Set aside in a cool place to set.  Meanwhile, whisk egg white, ground almonds and sugar in a bowl.

Stir in chopped pistachios and then fill the chocolate cases with the mixture – not quite to the top

Pour the remaining chocolate over the top of the molds to seal in the filling.  Top with a few chopped pistachios and put into the fridge until completely set
