These make lovely gifts for special occasions. I like them just simply dusted in cacao powder, but you can dip then in melted chocolate and or chopped nuts. Sometimes if I have friends for dinner and I have made a rich meal and filling meal, I like to serve after dinner cocktails, coffee and truffles instead of a dessert. These are perfect for that, as they have a hit of warming rum.
¼ cup dark rum, I used Mount Gay
½ cup coconut cream from the top of a full fat tin
200g dark chocolate
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp. maple syrup
1 tbsp. coconut oil or vegan butter
1/3 cup cacao powder to dust after
