    1. 1
      Remember: when melting the chocolate DO NOT let your bowl touch the water.
    2. 2
      Place the chopped chocolate and cream in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan half-filled with simmering water. Stir with a metal spoon until chocolate melts and the mixture is smooth. Stir in rum. Place in the fridge until the mixture is firm enough to roll into balls.
    3. 3
      Line a trays with baking paper. Roll chocolate mixture into a ball ( you can vary the size but 2 teaspoons might be a good start size). Place on trays. Repeat until mixture is gone then place in the fridge for 1 hour or until firm.
    4. 4
      When firm place the dark chocolate melts in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan half-filled with simmering water . Stir with a metal spoon until the chocolate melts and is smooth.
    5. 5
      Divide the truffles into 2 batches this is so they will keep firm while working them. Remove 1 batch from the fridge. Use a fork to dip truffles 1 at a time, in the melted chocolate to coat. Gently tap the fork on the edge of the bowl to allow excess chocolate to drip off. Carefully place on the prepared tray. Repeat until all have been dipped with the remaining truffles and melted chocolate. Set aside for 10 minutes to set.
    6. 6
      Place the white chocolate melts in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan half-filled with simmering water. Stir with a metal spoon until chocolate melts and is smooth. Use a fork to drizzle the white chocolate over the truffles. Place in fridge to set for 5 minutes then you can store in a container in the fridge or serve.

      Made these to share during our park's coffee-&-snack gathering, & they were a big hit, as much because of the rum as anything else! Now I'm looking to make them again closer to the end of the year! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this fall's round of Pick A Chef]
