Valrhona Chocolate Afghans

50 g milk chocolate110 ml cream 1/2 tsp sea salt Walnut halves Chopped pistachios Preheat oven to 180 degrees Cream butter and sugar together till light and fluffy. Sift in cocoa and icing sugar. Gently beat to combine. Sift in flour and cornflour and stir to combine. Add cornflakes and fold in. Don't stress if they crush and crack. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Using a dessertspoon roll into even balls. You should make around 20. Place in the oven and bake for 14 minutes. Once cooked, they will still sound a little bubbly - thats good. Leave them to cool slightly on the tray for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. For the ganache, combine all the ingredients in a bowl and place over a small amount of simmering water in a pot. Heat slowly and stir occasionally to combine. Set aside to cool before using. You want the consistency to be firm but pliable. Using a teaspoon, generously dollop ganache on top of each biscuit then use a knife to spread around the top. Place walnut in the middle and sprinkle with pistachios. Serve. Enjoy!

Nothing like a good strong cup of tea
