This is a new recipe that I just tried yet. Wow! What flavor!! Just right for the Christmas goodie platter. I tried a batch with the dark rum and then tried another using Malibu, a light coconut rum. I really prefer the Malibu rum in this recipe.

Simply phenomenal! I used a white chocolate bar with coconut in it that is made by Lindt and available at CostCo's World Market. THANK YOU for sharing this recipe!

I tried this truffle to add variety to the candy tray I am planning to carry to my grandkids school for the teachers and staff one day next week. I used the Malibu rum and they came out so nice. Not too much alcohol flavor. I dyed some of the coconut with red and green food coloring to and they looked very attractive on my plate.
