When Christmas is around the corner, along with Christmas cake n chocolates n cookies n Christmas tree bread in the air, yummy chocolate truffles too join them in spreading happiness…

The addition of rum and cinnamon to chocolate truffles make them apt for the Christmas season. I add either rum/brandy or substitute it with honey depending upon for whom I am making these truffles. If I am making these for children then I avoid alcohol otherwise add rum to it. So, you are free to choose any of the two.

Notes

  1. You can take leftover biscuits also, provided they are not salty.

  4. You can omit brown sugar, especially if the biscuits are sweet.
  5. You can take normal dairy cream or heavy whipping cream, whichever is easily available. I used Amul's tetra pack.
