Last minute present panic? Don’t worry! Try this delectable sloe gin truffle recipe instead (and have a quick sloe gin for your nerves).

To make approx. 15 you’ll need:

  • 225g dark chocolate
  • 25g white chocolate
  • 20g unsalted butter
  • 1 tbsp single cream
  • 2 tbsp sloe gin (you want a nice syrupy one like Sipsmith Sloe)
  • 25g cocoa powder

Step 1. Melt 200g chocolate by placing it in a heatproof bowl over boiling water. Don't let the bowl touch the water.

Step 2. When the chocolate has melted, remove from the heat and stir in the butter, cream and gin.

Step 3. Leave the mixture to cool until possible to handle, then shape into balls.

Step 4. Leave to set for approximately one hour, then dust with cocoa powder.

Step 5. Melt 25g dark chocolate and 25g white chocolate. Stir gently to marble the chocolate then drizzle it over the truffles.

And voila! Delicious, homemade truffles for your favourite gin-lover.
