At this time of year, when all the shops are getting the Christmas goodies in, we eagerly await the arrival of the Rum Truffles. They always seem to be the last thing to turn up.
The ones we love come from Sainsburys, in a little plastic tray with red packaging.
This year I have been tasked with making some of our own - so, after scouring the net, I came up with the recipe below. Not quite as good as the bought ones, but 90% there. :-)
As with most of my goodies these are so EASY to make. There's no cooking, or boiling, so you could get the kids involved and make some for Christmas.The only thing I would do differently is add a little less jam - they could have been a bit firmer in the middle.
Lurking at the back of the cupboard were some shiny, paper cases... just the perfect size.
I think this recipe made about 40 truffles, but it's hard to remember how many we've already eaten!! :-)
