to taste

Belvoir Farm Elderflower & Rose Cordial


Icing sugar


Dark chocolate


Groundnut oil




Place the double cream, a small dab of pink food colouring and the rose syrup into a bowl and mix well. Sift the icing sugar over the cream mixture and stir to combine. Tip the mixture out onto a work surface lightly dusted with icing sugar and knead the fondant with your hands until it all comes together in a firm ball (add more icing sugar if necessary). Place in the fridge for about 30 minutes.


Using your hands, roll 20 teaspoon-sized lumps of mixture into balls, then flatten them slightly and place on a plate. Heat 5cm (2in) of water in a pan. Pop a heatproof bowl on top, making sure that the bottom of the bowl is not touching the water. Place the dark chocolate and the groundnut oil in the bowl and warm until melted. Remove from the heat and cool for 10 minutes.


Line a large, flat baking sheet with baking parchment. Carefully take a fondant ball, one at a time, and, using two forks, dip it in the melted chocolate until coated all over. Do this quickly, as you don’t want to melt the fondant. Place the coated fondant ball onto the baking parchment. Leave to cool and set in a cool place.
