Makes 1 tray
Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time 3 minutes
150g good quality dark chocolate
2 tablespoons (40ml) thick cream
1 tablespoon (20ml) Grand Marnier or Cointreau (optional)
- Heat cream in a very small saucepan or microwave and boil until it reduces by half. Stir in the liqueur if using. Pour over broken white chocolate in a dry heatproof bowl and either microwave for 1-2 minutes on 50% power until chocolate has melted; or place over a saucepan of simmering water until chocolate has melted. Do not overheat the chocolate.
- Stir until combined but do not overbeat. Refrigerate and stir occasionally until it is firming up evenly.
- Put into a piping bag with a plain wide nozzle and pipe into the round petite silicon moulds. Alternatively spoon in. Level off any excess with a spatula. Refrigerate until firm then turn out.
Lyndey’s Note: If for some reason your chocolate mixture seizes, add a little more very hot cream
