Chocolate Snaps

Dark Chocolate Snaps with Pistacchios

To begin with, a really quick and lovely way of treating chocolate - chocolate snaps.
I love them in dark with chopped salted pistacchios topping, but I think any sort of chocolate and nut would work. How about milk chocolates with haselnuts or white chocolates with almonds?
This is how I make them:

  • Melt 100 g of good quality chocolate over hot water. Don't stirr too much, otherwise it'll split and get grainy
  • When melted, pour with a teaspoon small circles (I do about 2-3 cm in diameter) on grease proof paper
  • Before cooled, top with chopped nuts
  • Let cool well before eating, I usually put them in the freezer for 10 mins or so
  • Keep in the fridge
Mine won't keep long though :-) I usually add some ground cardamom or some vanilla pods, depending on the chocolate, but this is to your own taste.
I hope all chocolate lovers will try and enjoy this simple recipe as much as I do.
