Miss Hope’s Gin & Tonic Truffles

Makes 20 gorgeous truffles and takes around 30 minutes to make plus overnight chilling.


100g (31/2oz) dark chocolate, broken into pieces

2 tbsp double cream

2 tbsp gin

Zest and juice of 1/2 lime

50g (2oz) unsalted butter, chopped

Cocoa powder, to dust

Heat 5cm (2in) water in a pan. Put a heatproof bowl on top of the pan, making sure the bottom of the bowl is not touching the water. Put the chocolate in the bowl with the cream and heat gently to allow the chocolate to melt. Tipple in the gin, lime zest and juice and the butter. Whisk the ingredients together until smooth and slightly thickened. Spoon into a sealable container, snap on the lid and chill overnight. Take teaspoons of the mixture and roll into balls. Put on a board lined with baking parchment and chill for an hour or so. Sieve the cocoa into a bowl and roll the truffles in it to cover. Enjoy and impress your friends.
