• 50 g Brazil nuts
  • 175 g plain flour
  • 50 g caster sugar
  • 100 g soft unsalted butter

To decorate:

  • 50 g dark chocolate melted
  • 50 g white chocolate melted


  1. 1

    In a food processor, blitz the Brazil nuts. Add the flour, caster sugar and butter and pulse to a large crumb texture.

  2. 2

    Turn out and work together until you have a dough. Form the dough into a disk and wrap in clingfilm. Chill for 30 minutes.

  3. 3

    Roll the dough to about 5mm thick between 2 sheets of baking paper (this makes it easier). Stamp out stars with a 5cm star cutter – you'll need to do this in batches. You want about 35 stars in total.

  4. 4

    Transfer the stars to baking sheets lined with baking paper. Pop into the freezer for about 20 minutes. Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas mark 4.

  5. 5

    Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden.

  6. 6

    Leave to cool completely before transferring to wire racks.

  7. 7

    Pour the melted chocolate into separate piping bags. Drizzle vertical lines with the dark chocolate, leave to set slightly, then drizzle the opposite way with the white chocolate.

  8. 8

    If you prefer, drizzle the chocolate with a teaspoon. Leave to set completely.


    Get ahead: make a few days ahead and store in an airtight container. Or freeze the dough stars and bake from frozen
