Stage 2 -
Bake the mini eclairs.
Stage 3 -
When cold, cut in half lengthways.
Stage 4 -
Fill each "bottom" with apple-flavoured confectioner's custard.
Stage 5 -
Replace the "lid".
Fill all the eclairs like this and put to wait in the fridge.
Stage 6 -
Prepare the walnut nougatine: preheat the oven to 300°F (150°C). Spread 50 g walnut kernels on a
and toast for 5 minutes in the oven.

Stage 10 -
...and mix thoroughly.
Now you need to work as quickly as possible, because the nougatine will set rapidly as it cools.
Stage 11 -
Stage 12 -

Stage 13 -
Use a large knife to cut the nougatine, or at least score it, into strips about 1 cm (0.3 inch) wide.
Stage 14 -
When cooled, cut the strips apart.
Stage 15 -
Stick these onto the tops of the eclairs with a little confectioner's custard.
Refrigerate until needed, but do not serve too cold. Remarks
It is not essential for the nougatine to be a rectangle exactly the size and shape of the eclair. On the contrary, the "deconstructed" look with pieces laid side by side can be attractive.
Some recipes insist that the caramel for the nougatine should be made "dry", i.e. without added water, but I don't think this is essential. Nutritional information
