For the Sponge
  • 10 egg whites
  • 1 cup (120 g) powder sugar
  • 2 cups (350 g) of ground walnuts

  • 1 cup (150 g) powder sugar

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 F (175 C) degrees
  2. Beat the egg whites (while slowly adding the sugar) until stiff peaks

  6. Remove from oven, let it cool then cut in two long equal pieces. Here we have two pieces

  1. Create a double boiler (bain-marie) and cook the yolks and sugar (constantly stirring) on a medium heat for about 15 min
  2. Add the chocolate chips and cook for 10 min, constantly stirring. Once the mixture thickens up and you see boiling bubbles, take off of the heat and let it cool
  3. Beat the butter until cream, add to the mixture and let it cool completely
  1. Lay one base piece, spoon chocolate filling and cover with another piece
  2. Spoon some more of the filling again and cover it with the next piece and so forth
