I really like truffles and after making the orange truffles a while back I have been wanting to make many other variations. I need to make coffee truffles ASAP!!

One thing I do when I make truffles is double or triple the batch and keep the chocolate mixture in the fridge. Then when I need to go to friends houses or give some goodies away I go to my truffle chocolate stash and roll away. Even if I keep the mixture in the fridge for a couple of months they still taste perfectly fine :-)

Just let the mixture sit at room temperature until able to roll.

Now, I do always use chocolate chips, I know that with truffles you are suppose to use best chocolate you can find, but so far it has worked for me and I haven’t had any complaints!

Truffles are super easy to make if you are not doing fancy coatings and such so I suggest you try them. Truffles are also very versatile so use any flavors you may like.

These rum raisin chocolate truffles are nothing but delicious so I hope you like them!

Enjoy!!

This is how the chocolate mixture looks like when mixing in all of the ingredients. Not that you can see very good but I thought it may help. The little chunks are the raisins.

Rum raisin chocolate truffles

Yield: 30 truffles

Ingredients:

1 tablespoon of butter
1/2 cup heavy cream
12 oz dark chocolate chips
1/4 cup rum
1/2 cup raisins

Coating:

1 cup walnuts, chopped (you can use cocoa powder or shredded unsweetened coconut)

 

Directions:

In a medium mixing bowl place the raisins and rum and let it sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.

Place the raisins and rum in the bowl of a mini food processor and process until the raisins are finely minced.

In a medium sauce pan heat the heavy cream over medium to low heat.  Don't boil just heat it to the point before boiling. Pour hot cream over chocolate and butter. Let it sit for 30 seconds and then whisk until chocolate is melted. (If you find that the chocolate doesn't melt place bowl over a double boiler until it does, I sometimes have to do this)

Stir in the raisin mixture and store it in the fridge until soft enough to roll.

With a spoon take small pieces of the chocolate mixture and roll them round. Deep the truffles in the chopped walnuts and store in the fridge until time to serve.

Before serving let the truffles sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes.

  3. Wow, I might have to make these as well. Does the olive oil flavor the brownies at all? Possible to sub with something or you think that’s the way to go??

  4. skinny fat kid,

    totally the way to go, no need to substitute, you can’t taste the flavor at all. Just make sure you use just olive oil not the extra virgin kind.

  5. This looks amazing, I’ll definitely be trying out these brownies. I live in NJ too! :-)

  6. I love this… so good. Have you tried Healthy Chocolate to make the brownies. I found some that not only tastes great but does the body good. Try it and tell me what you think. http://www.mychocolatelifestyle.com

  7. About olive oil: I have used extra virgin olive oil in all your recipes and nobody could tell that there was olive oil in them. This recipe was the only one where you could tell I used olive oil, but the flavor was really, really subtle. I’m sure with normal olive oil you couldn’t tell at all. :)

    I liked this better than the brownie pie recipe! I think these were more moist. I only used 1/2 cup sugar and they were sugary enough for us. Thanks!

  8. Oh cool ;-)

    thanks for making the recipes even healthier with your suggestions……

    Regards and thanks again

  11. What a dish, browni is awesome.My brother loves it very much. in other words he is mad for it.i will surely prepare i for him.

  12. Sharing these on my facebook page today :)

  13. Can i use coco powder instead of chips? If so how much should I use?

    • No because the chocolate chips help with the structure of the brownies. The cocoa powder doesn’t have the same effect so I don’t know if the brownies would turn out the same. Sorry!
