In a world of convenience, where supermarket chocolate boxes and service station flowers practically jump into your arms, taking the time to make something yourself is a great way to show how much you really care.
Here is my late great Auntie Ivy’s chocolate truffle recipe. Beautifully balanced, with a hint of bitter coffee and brandy, these rich delicacies melt in your mouth.
300g Dark chocolate
½ cup Espresso – cold
50ml Cold milk
1 shot Brandy
- Melt chocolate with cream.
- Stir cocoa into cold coffee, milk and brandy.
- Stir into chocolate.
- Cool a little.
- Roll into balls & coat with cocoa.
