Ingredients
 

  • 12 whole walnut halves
  • 12 whole pecan halves
  • 1 lb icing confectioners' sugar; sifted
  • 1 teaspoon of lemon juice
  • 1 large free-range egg white lightly whisked
  • 1 dessertspoon of coffee essence
  • 1 teaspoon of water
  • 3 1/2 oz luxury dark continental chocolate optional

Instructions

  • Mix the icing (confectioners') sugar, lemon juice and egg white in a bowl until pliable.
  • Add the coffee essence and water. Knead on a clean surface dusted with icing (confectioners') sugar.
  • Shape the mixture into balls about 2.5 cm (1 inch) in diameter, press half a walnut into half of the coffee balls and press the pecans into the remaining coffee balls (this should flatten the balls slightly).
  • For chocolate-drizzled creams, melt the chocolate in a small bowl in the microwave, stir until smooth and drizzle over the nuts on each sweet.
  • Put the walnut and pecan creams into little paper cases and leave them for 24 hours to set and dry.
  • Transfer to a pretty box or keep them in an airtight container until needed.
