These truffles make great gifts – just wrap them in little sweet tins or boxes tied with ribbon. The surprise comes from adding a tiny pinch of chilli to the last bit of mix. You'll end up with a few spicy truffles hidden away amongst the rest! A spicy lucky dip.
The best Christmas cake recipe I have tried. It was a great success last year and I look forward to trying it again this year. I used brandy and let it mature for about 8 weeks feeding it more brandy every now and again.
