So for Valentine’s Day, you may have booked a table in a fancy restaurant, or you’re keeping it cosy with dinner at home. How about a little finishing touch with some homemade rum truffles? These babies are soooo easy to make, like ridiculously no-brainer easy. But they taste so good and are seriously decadent. Once you’ve made these once, you’ll be whipping them up for Mother’s Day, Easter, Christmas, Aunty Margaret’s Birthday… So with that in mind, shall we begin?
INGREDIENTS: (for 30 truffles)
125g Coconut Fat
250g Icing Sugar
30g Cocoa Powder
30g Ground Walnuts
1/2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1-2 Tablespoon Rum (or Whiskey) depending on your taste
Chocolate Sprinkles/Desiccated Coconut/Chopped Walnuts to roll truffles in
Mix all ingredients together, apart from sprinkles, to create a smooth mixture (I told ya it was easy). Leave to cool for an hour in the fridge. Form into small balls and roll in the chocolate sprinkles or chopped nuts depending on your preference. Present in truffle cases and go as fancy as you like on the presentation. Enjoy!
