What’s better than gin and tonic? Gin and tonic AND chocolate. Who knew?!

I’ve been planning my festive food gift making for weeks, I’m doing batches of , and but fancied making something a little more grown up for my girlfriends.

So, onto these truffles. Every year I try and make some homemade food gifts. It’s stretched from the sublime to the ridiculous if I’m honest.

One year I spent MONTHS preparing homemade hampers for everyone, rather exhausting myself in the process. Totally worth it for the happy oohs and aaahs as they opened them though. There’s something really special about the love and care that goes into a homemade food gift isn’t there?

For me, it’s part of the spirit of Christmas. Spending time, doing something thoughtful for loved ones. Oh and chocolate obvs.

How do you make Homemade Gin and Tonic truffles?

Making these Gin and Tonic truffles is a lot easier than you might think! The first step is to slowly melt the chocolate over a pan of simmering water. Once its fully melted you remove from the heat and add in double cream, gin, tonic, lime juice and lemon zest. Put the mixture in the fridge, uncovered, for around 2 hours or overnight if you have time.

Once the chocolate mixture is fully chilled, form it into small, walnut sized balls with clean hands. Place the balls onto baking paper and pop back into the fridge for 2 hours or freezer for 1 hour.

Whilst the chocolate balls are chilling melt the white chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering water. Remove the truffles from the fridge or freezer and dip to coat in the white chocolate, tapping off any excess. Allow the chocolate to set totally before serving. Serve the truffles at room temperature.

Tips for making the homemade Gin and Tonic Truffles recipe:

- Be sure to use good quality dark and white chocolate for the recipe – I try to use my favourite chocolate for this recipe. This chocolate is just amazing, it melts so well and really makes a difference to any recipe. When you buy it in bulk from it works out about the same price as supermarket chocolate. A good investment I think as it really does make SUCH a difference.

- Take great care when melting your chocolates. Do it slowly and gently over a pan of simmering water or in a microwave, stopping to stir regularly. The best lesson I’ve ever learned about melting chocolate is do it SLOWLY.

- Use whichever gin you have or fancy.

- I used a drizzle of leftover white chocolate to flick across the top of them for the zigzag effect.
