    I made these for a head chef of the best restaurant in Cardiff and he LOVED them! My own idea and they have been a hit at all my dinner parties. Great with ouzo or sambuca!

    1. Place cream into saucepan and heat gently. Break up chocolate and add to cream. Stir until smooth, prehaps add an extra 20ml of cream depending on texture.
    2. Add pre-chopped liquorice and pepper. Stir until mixture looks like thick melted chocolate. (You can carry on heating until mixture starts bubbling and do this for about 3 minutes and you will get a cool fudgey texture to them!)
    3. Remove from heat and place into a bowl and leave mixture to cool in the fridge.
    4. Remove after about 2-3 hours and mould into balls, these can be eaten like so or covered in icing sugar, cocoa, nuts, etc. Store in the fridge for ideal texture.
