Rum Truffles

Rum Truffles


"These truffles will be soft inside despite that it feels firm on the outside. You only need to store them in a cool place, but not necessarily the fridge. Make sure you always use an airtight container! Be sure to use good quality chocolate!"

  1. Line a sheet pan with aluminum foil or parchment paper. Place chopped chocolate in a heatproof bowl.
  2. In a saucepan, combine cream and butter. Place over low heat, and bring to a boil. Pour over chocolate, and stir until chocolate is melted and smooth. Stir in cake crumbs and rum. Set aside until firm, but not hard.
  3. Roll heaping teaspoons of chocolate mixture into balls, then roll in the chocolate sprinkles. Place on the prepared tray. Refrigerate 30 minutes or until firm. Serve in small paper cups.


  • Note
  • I save up chocolate cake crumbs whenever I have a chance. They can be stored in the freezer. Pack the crumbs in the amount needed. A good chocolate cake makes all the difference!

Easy to make, fairly tasty, but don't taste like a true truffle. The chocolate needs to be chopped very finely, almost shaved, in order to melt properly.

This was my first time making truffles and they turned out great! I made them with half and half and coated them with melted chocolate. Very easy to make!

these are really good. Even though real truffles are only made with cream chocolate and a flavoring, whithout cake, they tasted pretty nice. I used orange extract instead of rum. They actually t...

I made these for xmas treats and they were a huge hit. The only problem I have with this is you can't taste the rum at all so I will add a bit more the next time I make these.

This was my first time making truffles and I have to say, they tasted like a small bite of heaven. I used semi-sweet chocolate chips instead of bittersweet chocolate because I couldn't find it h...

5 stars once I figured out how to form them. The only way to roll these is to stick the "dough" in the fridge for about an hour... otherwise it's like a thick goopy batter and impossible to ha...

Very good! Thought it was never going to get hard enough to roll into balls, but chilled it for about 15 minutes and was just right. Used coffee flavored tequila.

This was simple and great. I used semisweet chocolate (couldn't fine bittersweet) and they were a tiny bit on the sweet side. I couldn't really taste the rum at all, but I loved how soft they we...
