To make the ganache, add the water, cream, sugar and Stilton to a pan and bring to a simmer. Place the chocolate in a large, heat-proof bowl and pour the Stilton mixture into the bowl, stirring continuously to melt the chocolate
  • 200ml of water
  • 200ml of double cream
  • 75g of golden caster sugar
  • 100g of Stilton, very mature, roughly chopped
  • 500g of 70% dark chocolate, broken into pieces
Mix the port into the chocolate until completely incorporated. Allow to cool then cover and place in the fridge for at least 2 hours to set
Once set, scoop out even quantities with a teaspoon and place on some parchment paper. Coat your hands in cocoa powder and quickly roll into balls before the ganache starts to melt. Store in the fridge until ready to coat in tempered chocolate, or eat straight away
