These are really simple to make and can be served with coffee or ice cream. Use a good, all-butter pastry for better results.

- 100 g good-quality plain dark chocolate, broken into chunks (or high-cocoa milk chocolate)
- 1 finely grated orange, zest of
- 500 g puff pastry

- 2 tablespoons milk
- icing sugar
- Preheat the oven to 200C.Lightly grease a couple of baking sheets.
- Put the walnuts, chocolate and orange zest in a food processor and chop fairly finely.
- Beat the egg and milk together to prepare egg wash.
- Roll out the pastry to about 3mm thickness, then slice into strips roughly 4cm by 12cm.
- Brush each strip with the egg wash, then scatter with a layer of the chopped walnut mixture. Press it lightly into the pastry. Form each strip into a twist.

- Leave to cool before serving.
