If you're a fan of the sweet-meets-boozy combo, I've got just the thing for you -an Easy Homemade Dark Chocolate Rum Truffles recipe!

To make this indulgent treat, start by finely chopping the dark chocolate. Secondly, add heavy cream and chocolate in a small pan. Melt chocolate in low heat, stirring constantly, until you're left with a smooth chocolate mixture. Be careful not to let it boil.

Remove from heat, add rum and vanilla, and mix well to ensure an even distribution of flavors. Next, cover the chocolate mixture and refrigerate it for at least 1.5 hours or until it becomes firm enough to handle.

Once chilled, use a spoon or a small cookie scoop to scoop out portions of the mixture and roll them into 1-inch balls (preferably with cold hands). Place the truffle balls on a parchment-lined tray.

Lastly, place the cocoa powder in a shallow bowl, place each truffle in the bowl of cocoa powder, then roll it until it's well-coated.

If the truffles have softened during the rolling process, chill them again in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes to firm up. Your Dark Chocolate Rum Truffles are ready to be enjoyed! Serve them at room temperature.
