Rum Truffles with Awards

Sitting home last evening after a spicy dinner I deserved (or desired ;)) something very yummy and sweet that could be a great end to the day. So I prepared this quick and simple sweet delicacy which turned out amazing. I referred to couple of books and blogs mixed and matched couple of ingredients and vallah..Rum truffles were born ;).

A very few remain the refrigerator now!! This took me around half an hour only, so go for it and make these sweetums..

Ingredients –

Plain chocolate – 150 gms
Butter – 2 tablespoons
Rum/ Rum essence – 2 tablespoons
Shredded coconut – 50 gms
Cake crumbs – 100 gms
Icing sugar – 7 tablespoons
Cocoa powder – to roll the truffles

Procedure –

  • Break the chocolate into pieces and place in a bowl with the butter.
  • Set the bowl over a sauce pan of simmering water (double boiler method) and stir until melted and combined.
  • Remove from the heat and beat in the rum. Stir in the shredded coconut, cake crumbs and two thirds of the icing sugar. Beat until combined. Add a little extra rum if the mixture is stiff.
  • Roll the mixture into small balls and place them on a butter paper. Chill until firm.
  • Sieve the remaining icing sugar and cocoa powder onto 2 different large plates. Roll half of the truffles in the icing sugar until nicely coated and roll the remaining in the cocoa powder.
  • Place the truffles to chill in the refrigerator.

Tips –

You may use vanilla essence instead of rum essence or rum flavor.
Substitute rum with any other alcohol if preferred.
