  1. Preheat oven to 160 C / Gas mark 3.
  2. Spread nuts on a baking tray and toast in preheated oven, watching carefully, until golden, about 10 minutes. Rub the skins from the toasted nuts using a tea towel, then coarsely chop.
  3. Line a baking tray with aluminium foil. Spread chopped nuts evenly on foil. Melt chocolate in a double boiler over simmering water. Drizzle chocolate evenly over nuts. Place in freezer until firm. Once firm, break into bite-size chunks.
  4. Line a 20cm (8 in) square tin with foil.
  5. In a small bowl, beat egg yolks until light yellow. Beat in honey. In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until stiff. In a third bowl, beat cream with vanilla until stiff. Fold cream into egg whites, then fold egg yolks into cream mixture. Fold in chocolate covered nuts, then pour into prepared tin.
  6. Freeze 8 hours or overnight until firm. To serve, invert onto a platter, remove foil and slice.
