Rum & Raisin Truffles

 

Few months ago while I was taking my hiatus & taking care of Twitch after his accident I had lot of time to watch Food Network shows luckily Twitch is little foodie like me……

…..one day I was watching Barefoot Contessa – Ina Garten show…..she had a guest….a lady chocolatier sorry I forgot the name and they were making RUM & RAISIN CHOCOLATE TRUFFLES….

I turned on my PVR…..grabbed my little notebook and we were in business….they were making delicious TRUFFLES….I was writing down the recipe and tips….

 

 

I wanted to try these Rum & Raisin TRUFFLES ever since I wrote them down, but never had a good enough occasion…..being that the truffles have quite a bit of rum in them….in other words….WOULDN’T serve them to children….

Two weeks ago my hubby came home for 2 weeks after being 3 months on the rigs…..what better way to welcome him home then with CHOCOLATE truffles with the taste of rum….both of his favorite

….also I wanted to make these TRUFFLES to show hubby how proud I am of him….since January he started healthier living….till this day he lost over 50lbs…..and counting…..

….I figured little indulgence & celebration was in order…..

 

 

Recipe for Rum & Raisin Truffles is in grams…..Ina was very insistent that for order to get the best TRUFFLES ever you need to follow the ingredients & weight to a T…..I did and result was…..DIVINE…CHOCOLATE HEAVEN….ORGASMIC…..
