Rum Truffles

  • 3 1/2 ounces cooking chocolate
  • 2 egg yolks
  • coconut
  • 1 ounce ground almonds
  • 2 ounces butter
  • 7 ounces icing sugar (powdered sugar)
  • 2 Tbsp dark rum
  • 1 ounce plain biscuit crumbs

Put broken chocolate and butter in bowl and soften in microwave or double boiler. Mix in egg yolks then remaining ingredients, except coconut. Chill until firm then form into small balls and roll in coconut. Keep in refrigerator. Variations Replace Rum with tipple of your choice ie Brandy, Sherry, Orange or Coffee liqueur. The mixture may be rolled around a glace cherry or ginger. Try chocolate hail instead of coconut. For a real luxury, soak a few glace cherries in the same liqueur overnight (or longer) then make the balls. Superb with coffee liqueur...I'm trying them with Grand Marnier this year.
