Ice Cream Truffles

Melt the chocolate slowly in the microwave, or in a baine-marie.

Using a small kitchen paintbrush, paint the inside of the silicon chocolate moulds in a silicone chocolate mould tray with a little melted chocolate and freeze for 10 minutes.

Remove from freezer and repeat with a second layer of melted chocolate, ensuring that the moulds are well coated. Freeze again for a couple of minutes until completely set.

Remove from freezer and add a dash of liqueur to the chocolate moulds and top with a teaspoonful of vanilla ice cream. Return to the freezer again for a couple of minutes.

Once frozen, seal with a little more melted chocolate and then return to the freezer until ready to serve.

Tip: Keep the melted chocolate in a liquid state by placing the bowl over a smaller bowl of heated water.

To Serve

Carefully unmould the ice cream truffles and sprinkle with a little edible gold dust just before serving.
