Rum Truffles

    20 min

    These truffles will be soft inside despite that it feels firm on the outside. You only need to store them in a cool place, but not necessarily the fridge. Make sure you always use an airtight container! Be sure to use good quality chocolate!

    Altered ingredient amounts. I doubled the amount of cake crumbs as it was only liquid chocolate with the amount suggested. I also doubled the rum as I couldn't taste it with only 2 tsp, and it was for a present.  -  26 Dec 2009


    I would make this again with my tweaks, as it was very nice.  -  26 Dec 2009
