Marzipan cream

Using a whisk, combine the milk, marzipan, cornflour and egg in a pan and bring to the boil over a medium heat, stirring constantly. As soon as the mixture thickens and turns creamy, immediately remove the pan from the heat, whisk for a further 2 mins. Pour through a sieve into a bowl. Place a sheet of cling film directly over the top and leave to cool completely, chill for approx. 1 hrs. Stir the cream until smooth. Carefully fold in the whipped cream.

Mint pesto

Mix the lime zest and juice with the oil, sugar and salt, stir in the almonds and peppermint.

To serve

Divide the cream between 2 glasses. Drizzle with the mint pesto and serve with the amandes au chocolat noir salé.
