I don’t usually post recipes but I thought seeing as it’s Christmas, I’ll share some quick and easy recipes that can be prepared and made in time for Christmas day. I think the nut truffles were a lot easier to make, but the rich chocolate rum was more fun and messy!
Chocolate Nut Truffles
Finely grate the chocolate into a bowl, then add nuts and sugar. Add vanilla and cream to bind the ingredients together. Form into small bowls and roll in chocolate vermicelli. Keep cool until serving.
Rich Chocolate Rum Truffles
Melt the chocolate into a bowl then add the egg yolks, butter, rum and cream. Stir the mixture until thick enough to handle. Cool slightly, then roll into balls ready to be dipped in chocolate powder.
