Melt the chocolate in a glass bowl over a pan with hot water (don’t let the bowl touch the water).  Once melted, set aside to cool, but not to harden. 

Beat the eggs and sugar in a bowl until thick and pale.  With the help of a metal spoon fold the chocolate into the egg mixture.  Add in the nuts and amaretto liquor, mix well and then gently fold in the whipped cream.  

Place the mixture into four separate dessert glasses (approx. 250ml), refrigerate for 3 hours until set.  Just before serving decorate with some crushed pistachio nuts on top.
