King's Ginger Truffles

These are quick, easy and very festive. They will adorn our table at the end of the meal in case anyone is still remotely hungry.

King's Ginger Truffles

The recipe comes from Berry Brothers & Rudd as does The King's Ginger

Makes about 24

200g good quality chocolate
175ml double cream
5 tbspn The King's Ginger Liqueur

1 tspn finely chopped drained stem ginger in syrup

Cocoa powder for dusting

Line a baking tray with cling film.

Break the chocolate inot small pieces and drop into a heat proof bowl.

Bring the cream to the boil over a low flame and pour over the chocolate. Stir until all the chocolate is melted.
Add the King's ~Ginger and the chopped stem ginger and mix well. Leave the mix to cool to room temperature which takes about 2 hours, when the mix will have stiffened nicely.

Use a teaspoon or melon baller and roll into interesting shapes. Roll in cocoa powder (I used toothpicks to turn them) and place on the baking sheet. Chill overnight.

Gorgeously ginger!

Happy Christmas everyone - eat well!
