directions

  • Break chocolate up and place in a bowl with the brandy. Place bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Stir gently to combine until the chocolate is smooth.
  • Stir in the butter and egg yolk until well combined (the heat from the chocolate will help melt the butter).
  • Refrigerate until firm enough to shape into balls - I made mine slightly larger than standard marbles, but it's up to you and your conscience! Roll each ball in the cocoa (or you could experiment with chocolate hail, crushed pistachio nuts, etc. I used drinking chocolate, as it's sweeter than plain cocoa).
  • Return to the fridge (or freeze, as desired). Serve chilled.

    This is a nice idea but I think it needs some sweetness, I used Valrhona dark chocolate - my usual type (70%). I will try this again with a sweeter chocolate and hopefully that will balance the flavour a bit. I did only make half the recipe.

I've never been much of a cook - not so much that I was bad at it, I just didn't have the patience or the passion for it. However since becoming a stay-at-home mum a year ago with baby #2, I have a new-found interest in cooking and baking. I am especially interested in finding a good, varied mix of liqueur-based dessert recipes, so that I can host a naughty-but-nice dessert party for my friends and I :-)
