White Chocolate and Pistachio Shards

White Chocolate and Pistachio Shards Recipe

This is my go-to petit four recipe when hosting. These little bites of sweetness are perfect alongside a coffee and to offer as a small sweet treat for people who don’t want a full dessert. I would recommend doubling the quantities in this recipe because these shards don’t often hang around for long and it’s always good to have a little extra tucked away so that you can refill as the evening (or afternoon) continues! 

Preparation time approx. 5 minutes 


50g white chocolate 

8 salted pistachio nuts  


Small plate 

Small bowl 





This is will make enough for 4 people


  1. First cover the small plate in clingfilm. 
  2. Next shell the pistachios and roughly chop them. 
  3. Then melt the chocolate in the microwave in a bowl. Make sure you do 20-30 seconds at a time, so you don’t burn it. Once melted pour the chocolate onto the clingfilm covered plate and using the back of the spoon spread the chocolate evenly. 
  4. Finally pour the chopped pistachios over the melted chocolate. 
  5. Set aside in the fridge until serving.
