Subject: Homemade Coffee & Rum Truffles
 

Ive always believed that homemade gifts add an extra special touch to any occasion. These homemade coffee and rum truffles are so simple to make, cost a fraction of their shop bought counter parts and are the perfect gift for any coffee lover.

Ingredients Makes 36 truffles
450g good quality dark chocolate (minimum 70% cocoa solids)
40g unsalted butter, cubed
2 large egg yolks
25ml brewed espresso
15ml dark rum

Method
  1. Add half of the chocolate into a heatproof bowl and place over a pan of simmering water to melt.
  2. Once melted, remove the chocolate from the heat and whisk in the butter, followed by the egg yolks, espresso and rum, ensuring all ingredients are well combined.
  3. Place in the fridge and allow the mixture to firm for approximately 1 hour.
  4. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
  5. Remove the truffle mixture from the fridge and using two teaspoons, roll rounded balls and place them on the baking tray. Once all of your truffle balls have been made, place the tray in the fridge for an hour.
  6. Melt the remaining chocolate over a pan of simmering water. Once melted, remove from the heat and allow to cool for around 10 minutes.
  7. Remove your tray of truffles form the fridge and using a skewer, spear each truffle and dip in the cooled chocolate, the place back on the baking tray.
  8. Once your truffles have all been dipped in the melted chocolate, return the tray to the fridge to set.
  9. Once set, transfer the truffles to an airtight container where they should keep in the refrigerator for around two weeks
