  • 10 ounces fruit cake or other holiday cake or moist bread
  • 1 tablespoon dark rum
  • 7.5 ounces dark chocolate melted
  • 7.5 ounces dark chocolate melted for dipping
  • cocoa for dusting


  • Place the fruit cake and rum in a food processor.  Process until combined.   Place in a bowl and pour over the 7.5 ounces of dark chocolate.  Mix to combine.  Refrigerate for 30 minutes - don't go any longer because the chocolate will become too firm to shape. 
  • Shape into 1 ½ inch balls.  Using two forks, dip the truffles into the melted chocolate.  Place on a lightly greased wired rack placed on top of a baking sheet lined with non stick baking paper.   Refrigerate one hour or until set. 
  • Dust with cocoa before serving.
