    • Vegetarian
    • Preparation time: 20 + chilling
    • Cooking time: 25 minutes
    • Total time: 45 minutes + chilling

    Makes: 25 - 30

    Ingredients

    Choux pastry (from my basic choux pastry recipe)
    15g finely chopped almonds
    100g chopped dark chocolate
    150g chestnut spread
    300ml tub double cream
    Icing sugar to dust
     

    Method

    1. Pipe the choux dough (from my basic choux pastry recipe) into 25-30 small rounds, then sprinkle the uncooked dough with the finely chopped almonds. Bake as directed.

    2. Melt the chopped dark chocolate in the microwave or in a bowl over a pan of gently simmering water until smooth, then stir in the chestnut spread.

    3. Whip the double cream in a separate bowl until it forms soft peaks, then fold into the chocolate chestnut mixture. Spoon into a piping bag and chill until needed.

    4. Fill each bun with the chocolate chestnut cream and dust with icing sugar before serving.
