TRUFFLE VS TRUFFLE

I don't usually post recipes but I thought seeing as it's Christmas, I'll share some quick and easy recipes that can be prepared and made in time for Christmas day. I think the nut truffles were a lot easier to make, but the rich chocolate rum was more fun and messy!
Chocolate Nut Truffles
Ingredients:
100g plain chocolate
25g finely chopped mixed nuts
50g icing sugar
1-2 drops vanilla extract
1 tbsp single cream
chocolate vermicelli 
 Finely grate the chocolate into a bowl, then add nuts and sugar. Add vanilla and cream to bind the ingredients together. Form into small bowls and roll in chocolate vermicelli. Keep cool until serving.
Rich Chocolate Rum Truffles 
Ingredients:
225g plain chocolate
2 egg yolks
25g butter
2 tbsp rum
1 tbsp single cream
drinking chocolate powder
Melt the chocolate into a bowl then add the egg yolks, butter, rum and cream. Stir the mixture until thick enough to handle. Cool slightly, then roll into balls ready to be dipped in chocolate  powder. 
Et voila!
