For the heart BoxThoroughly clean and polish the non-stick heart baking tins. (you can also use plastic chocolate moulds for this)Ensure the moulds are around 25°C.Too cold and the chocolate will appear dull and too warm will take the chocolate out of temper.
FillThe two moulds with chocolate.Give them a little tap to ensure there are no air pockets and allow the moulds to sit at room temperature for a few minutes in order for a shell to form at the edge of the mould.
InvertThe mould to remove any excess chocolate.Tap them thoroughly to ensure you create a thin shell.
ScrapOff any excess off the rim in order to leave a clean, uniform edge.
PlaceThe mould upside down on a baking paper lined tray and place in the fridge to set fully.This should take no longer than 10-15 minutes.
In the meantimeDip some strawberries in the remaining chocolate and if using, topped with pistachios.Place in the fridge to set.
