Gaby's Bakery - Chocolate & Chestnut Pavé

The term "pavé", from French, sounds romantic but actually means cobblestone. In cooking and baking it usually refers to a square or oblong block of food. Less romantic sounding, so we'll stick with pavé and nonetheless, this looks gorgeous and tastes even better.

Chocolate & Chestnut Pavé

Ingredients:
250g dark chocolate
250g chestnut puree
200g sugar
200g butter
2½ tbsp brandy
1 tsp vanilla extract

To decorate:
Cocoa powder to sprinkle Chocolate shavings

Method:
Grease and line a 20 x 10cm baking tin.

Gently melt the chocolate in a bain marie. Take off the heat once melted and smooth, leave to cool.

In a large bowl beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, then add the chestnut puree, brandy, vanilla and chocolate. 

 

Mix until everything is incorporated. Pour this into the prepared tin, cover and place in the fridge to set.

 

When ready to serve, take out the fridge and sprinkle with cocoa powder and chocolate shavings.

Enjoy.
