Sloedrops21 December, 2008
- Dark chocolate, melted
- Sloes soaked in gin
- Caster sugar in a bowl
- A homebrew sloe stoner (that is, a cherry stoner and a carefully scrubbed 10mm washer from the mysterious tin full of washers in your Dad’s shed. Sloes are smaller than cherries.)
- A tall container filled with ice cold water
Stone the sloes and roll them in the sugar, then cover with melted chocolate and drop one at a time into the water* so that they cool spherically. When the chocolate has hardened, fish them out, dry and dust with icing sugar.
*from a few inches above the water’s surface, trying to avoid existing sloedrops, bits of chocolate, icecubes, the side of the jar… sounds easy, right?
