Boozy Thermomix Rum & Raisin Balls

I’m a big, BIG fan of making homemade foodie Christmas gifts. There really is just nothing nicer than getting a homemade present (and because I’m crafty-challenged, my homemade gifts need to be food!).

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
Servings: 20

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup rum
  • ½ cup raisins
  • 200 g dark chocolate
  • cup thickened cream
  • ½ cup chocolate sprinkles , for coating

Instructions

  • Place the rum and raisins into a microwave for 2-3 X 30 second bursts (alternatively you could heat them in the TM on 100 degrees, Reverse Speed soft for 2 minutes – but I find it easier to use the microwave).
  • Set aside for 30 minutes to allow the flavour to enhance. You’ll notice that most of the rum will have soaked up.
  • Grate the chocolate in the TM for 10 seconds on Speed 8.
  • Scrape down the sides of the bowl.
  • Add the cream and melt for 2-3 minutes, 50 degrees, Speed 3.
  • Add the rum infused raisins and mix on Reverse Speed 2 for 10 seconds.
  • Pour the chocolate ganache mixture into a bowl and cover with plastic wrap.
  • Leave to firm up in the fridge for 3 hours and then roll into heaped teaspoon sized balls.
  • Coat the truffles in chocolate sprinkles (or you could use sifted cocoa).
  • Keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.
