Lovely truffles made with chocolate and chocolate cake crumbs, as well as rum, for a truly decadent sweet or special present.
WOW...these truffles are out of this world!! The addition of chocolate cake crumbs really makes these truffles unique. I made 75 truffles for my graduation party, but since we don't drink, I modified slightly. I made 25 peanut butter truffles (omitted rum and added a few tbs. of creamy peanut butter), 25 espresso truffles (replaced rum with espresso and added instant coffee granules), and 25 raspberry truffles (omitted rum and added raspberry preserves). For coating, I dipped some in melted chocolate and rolled others in cocoa, nuts, and flaked coconut. - 06 Feb 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
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! - 07 Mar 2004 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Altered ingredient amounts. I doubled the amount of cake crumbs as it was only liquid chocolate with the amount suggested. I also doubled the rum as I couldn't taste it with only 2 tsp, and it was for a present. - 26 Dec 2009 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
