Chocolate truffles are petit balls that are rich, soft and grainy. They are made of a mouth-watering combination of chocolate, butter, icing sugar and coffee powder. Once the truffles are made, they are rolled in cocoa powder, castor sugar and walnuts, enhancing the drool-quotient! this recipe uses a spot of rum as a flavour enhancer, but you can avoid it if you want to.
