Sweet Melissa Sunday - Chocolate Rumm Truffles

Sweet Melissa Sundays is here and Nina of Nina's Cupcakes is our wonderful host for this week! I love that Nina chose Chocolate Rum truffles just because I felt in the mood to make truffles.

The truffles went together super fast last night. Just melt butter and bittersweet chocolate over simmering water until melted. Add egg yolks and rum, I used 10 Cane rum, and whip until shiny and smooth. Now refrigerate; I did, overnight.

My coatings were fun to pick out this morning. I used crushed Skor toffee bars, crushed peanuts, a powdered chocolate for sprinkling on espresso drinks, pearl sugar, and colored sprinkles. I put each truffle in its' own miniature cupcake liner and now I can share with friends and family! Thank you for a great choice this week. Make sure and check out the other SMS bakers to see imaginations at work.

I also made my famous homemade chicken fried steak and gravy, eggs over easy, and toast with blueberry peach jam for breakfast.

I am also working on making a Hot Buttered Rum Cheesecake with dark Appleton Rum, freshly grated nutmeg, cinnamon, and ground cloves. A hot buttered rum sauce will be drizzled over each slice. If all turns out well, I will come back and post the results along with the recipe!
