No piping bag?
If you don’t have a piping bag, snip off a small corner of a plastic food bag. Spoon the filling into this and use it to pipe, instead. Or, you can spoon the chocolate mixture over the After Eights, making sure to smooth over any air pockets.
Buy the tin
You can buy 6.5 x 22cm tins from specialist baking shops, or online at divertimenti.co.uk. You could also use a regular loaf tin – but as this is a bit wider, only make three layers of After Eights.
Freeze for a month
The marquise will keep in the freezer for up to one month – just defrost in the fridge for an hour before serving. Try freezing slices individually – this will make plating up much quicker.
