Rum Truffle Crackles

Happy weekend everyone, well nearly! I have rustled up the perfect remedy for those chilly nights when you need a little bite of comfort food to accompany a nice warm drink. Of course, you know me by now, this is another quick and easy recipe for those of us who are pushed for time (just a little).

Not only do these taste great with their crunchy sweet exteriors and soft chocolatey inners, I think they look  really cool too. I love the cracked texture which is accentuated by the frosty white icing sugar coating. Compact and bite sized - almost too easy to eat!

100g Caster sugar
30g Cocoa powder
90g Plain flour
30g Unsalted butter
50g Icing sugar
1/2 tsp Baking powder
10ml Rum
1 Egg

How to make
Line two baking trays with greaseproof paper. In a bowl, sift together the cocoa powder, flour and baking powder. Then mix in the butter to form a breadcrumb-type consistency.

In a separate bowl, mix the rum and the egg together before adding this to the breadcrumb mixture. Combine all the ingredients together to form a dough before wrapping this in cling film and placing in your fridge for one hour.

Preheat the oven to 180oc. Now roll the chilled dough into small 4cm balls. Tip the icing sugar onto a plate and roll each ball around it until fully coated. Transfer the balls to the trays and bake for 10 minutes. Yum!
