12 slices baguette, each ½-inch thick
1 cup (250 mL) ricotta cheese
2 tbsp (30 mL) honey, plus extra to drizzle
2 tsp (10 mL) fresh lemon juice
1 tbsp (15 mL) lemon zest
¼ cup (60 mL) pistachios, roughly chopped
½ bar (50 g) Lindt Swiss Classic White Chocolate, roughly chopped
Lemon twists, for garnish
- Preheat oven to broil.
- Place bread slices on a baking sheet in an even layer. Lightly toast bread in oven, about 1 to 2 minutes per side, until golden brown.
- In a medium bowl combine ricotta cheese, honey, lemon juice, zest, half of the chopped pistachios and half of the chopped Lindt Swiss Classic White Chocolate.
- Evenly divide the ricotta between the crostini, about 1 tbsp (15mL) per crostini. Place crostini back in oven for 1 minute, or until chocolate starts to caramelize.
- Top each crostini with a drizzle of honey, the remaining chopped pistachios and white chocolate. Top with a lemon twist and serve while warm.
