Restaurant with a story
Do you remember them?
It’s Valentine’s Day this weekend and time to treat the one you love. Thinking of chocolates and wine? How about making it yourself instead – that’s sure to impress!
Here’s our handmade chocolates recipe (it’s really simple – but delicious). Put them into a pretty box tied with ribbon to make them look really special.
Valentine’s Chocolate Truffles
150g good quality chocolate (50%-60% cocoa content is ideal)
75 ml double cream
· Carefully melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of gently simmering water (don’t let the water touch the bottom of the bowl).
· Stir in the double cream and chill mixture in the fridge.
· Scoop a teaspoon of mixture and shape into a ball.
· Dust with cocoa
As for the wine – how about mixing a favourite cocktail instead and adding your own special ice cubes. Try making them using a good quality elderflower water or maybe pureed raspberries. Served in a fancy glass and maybe even adding an edible flower or two!
