Chocolate truffles

Today I want to show you how to make a quick and easy dessert - chocolate truffles. If you want to prepare them for children, just omit rum :-)

200g plain chocolate (you can mix 100g plain 100 milk chocolate if you want sweeter truffles)
200ml double cream
2 tablespoons of rum (optional)
couple drops of rum flavouring
chocolate sprinkles for covering

Break chocolate into pieces and place in a bowl. Pour cream in a pan and heat it slowly on low heat, stirring occasionally. You have to heat it up to nearly-boiling point (but be careful not to boil it!). You can tell when it's the right time as cream starts to evaporate. Take it off the hob and pour over chocolate. Let it stand for 5 minutes. When most of the chocolate has melted, add rum and flavouring and stir with whisk until smooth. Let it cool completely. Cover and refrigerate for 2-3 hours until firm to touch. Take a teaspoon of mixture at a time and quickly form a ball in your hands and cover in sprinkles. You have to work quickly, cause heat from your hands will melt the chocolate (you can moisten your palms with a bit of oil, so mixture won't stick). You can keep them for up to 2 days if refrigerated, but mine didn't even last a day.
Hope you enjoy :-)
