Easy Rum Chocolate Truffles

easy chocolate truffles

I think we can all agree that chocolate is one of the best things about being a human. It’s sweet, creamy, delicious, and it fights off Dementors. Or something. Either way, it’s a total winner and I, for one, cannot get enough. Dark, milk, white, it doesn’t really matter; I will happily eat a block of chocolate all to myself. However, in an effort to be a little healthier in my old(er) age, I have been choosing quality over quantity. It’s not quite as fun as gorging on a bar of Galaxy whilst watching Bridget Jones’ Diary, or some other such cliché, but it has its perks. Like these truffles. Just three ingredients and a little bit of love, and you have yourself some more-ish, decadent truffles. They’re very rich, which means that even the likes of me and my chocolate addiction can only manage a couple at a time. So it’s really a win-win. Mouthfuls of rum-my, chocolate-y goodness and you can still say you’ve made a healthy choice. Or thereabouts. When it comes to my health, I’m aiming for better, not best. I will never be the girl that turns down chocolate, especially when it tastes as good as these.

Ingredients
  1. 200g good-quality dark chocolate (70% cocoa or above)
  2. 70ml coconut milk
  3. 2 tsp. rum (optional)
  4. cocoa powder for dusting
Instructions
  1. Break up the chocolate into small pieces or, even better, chop it up. The smaller the pieces are, the quicker and better they will melt! Place in a medium-sized bowl and set aside.
  2. In a small saucepan, heat the coconut milk until it's warmed through and just simmering. Pour over the chocolate and cover with a tea towel.
  3. Leave for 5 minutes, then uncover and add the rum, if using. Stir together until the mixture is smooth. If you are struggling, place the bowl over a pan of lightly simmering water to melt the remaining chocolate, or zap in the microwave for 10 seconds at a time.
  4. Cover with cling-film and place in the fridge for 2-3 hours until solid.
  5. Using a tablespoon, scoop small balls of mixture and then quickly roll and shape them into truffle shape!
  6. Place your cocoa powder on a plate and roll the truffles around lightly until coated.
  7. Enjoy!
Notes
  1. Store your truffles in the fridge to keep them fresh and stop them from melting into a sticky mess, but bring them out 10-15 minutes before you want to eat them.
