My mum places the stoned berries (hence she recommends slitting the berries for the gin rather than pricking) on a shallow-sided tray, spaces them out a bit, then simply pours on a melted bar or two of plain chocolate.
Leave to cool and harden ... and enjoy.
I think the point about using the spent berries to make chocolates is that the berries hold enough gin to produce a vaguely alcoholic chocolate (clearly of use to those who have time to sit around at home listening to Woman’s Hour?!). My daughter thinks I am being rude, but then she hasn’t had to endure Woman’s Hour.
[Note: Blackthorn referred to a Womans Hour recipe on the old sloe.biz site]
