Chocolate Rum Truffles Recipe

 

Makes approx . 20   
Total Prep & Cooking time:  20 minutes plus setting

 

Ingredients
150g/+5oz Good Quality Plain Chocolate

150ml/5fl.oz. Double Cream

2-3 tbsp Rum

Icing Sugar for dusting

Cocoa Powder, Chocolate Vermicelli or flakes for coating

 

Instructions

1. Break the chocolate into very small pieces, place in a large mixing bowl and set aside.

2. Place the cream in a small saucepan and heat over a medium/high heat to almost boiling point.

 

3. Immediately pour the hot cream over the chocolate pieces and mix with a wooden spoon until the chocolate has melted.

 

4. Add the rum and mix vigorously until all the ingredients are well incorporated and you have a smooth shiny mixture. Set aside uncovered at room temperature for 1 to 1  hours until the mixture has firmed up.

 

5. Line a baking sheet with clingfilm or parchment paper. Dust your hands with icing sugar, then take a teaspoonful of the chocolate mixture and roll into a ball about the size of a small walnut.

 

6. Roll the ball in the cocoa powder or chocolate vermicelli/flakes to coat on all sides and place on the lined baking sheet. Repeat until all the mixture has been used up, spacing the balls on the baking sheet so they don't touch each other. Place in the refrigerator for 4-8 hours until set.

 

Once set, keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
