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:
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.
Lucky enough to have a new Gin Festival In A Box? Try using them to make our favourite Gin Festival cocktails at home.
For National Curry Week we wanted to look at pairing curry with gin cocktails, so we visited Indian Street Food bar Bundobust, in Leeds, to see how it’s done.
6 O'Clock Gin is our Gin of the Month, so we sat down with Michael Kain, head distiller at Bramley and Gage, to chat about this superb modern gin.
If you are a bit of gin lover or interested in finding a gin that you really like then the Gin Festival would be a perfect event for you.
