Rum Raisin Truffles

Rum And Raisin Truffles


I came up with this recipe while staying at the parents’ house after rifling through their cupboards and finding some dark rum.

Before anyone freaks out, it’s only a dash of rum for flavour, nothing too crazy. I’m not a big drinker so I rarely have alcohol on hand, but after finding the rum and also having some raisins available, I couldn’t resist making some rum raisin truffles.


If you don’t have any rum, you can use rum extract or even pure vanilla extract for something a little different. The truffles will still be delicious. I used Bare Blends Raw Cacao WPI for a protein hit, but the Vanilla Bean WPI or the Bare WPI would also work.


I love how raisins have a slightly tart and tangy flavour, which I think blends so well with chocolate. So the truffles have a good hit of chocolatey raw cacao as well.
