Method:

Put the raisins in a bowl, pour over the rum and set aside to soak for at least an hour, preferably two.

Place the chocolate, broken into pieces, in a glass bowl and melt in a microwave oven or over a pan of simmering water. Stir until smooth, then beat in the cream, the soaked raisins and any rum left in the bowl.

Sift the icing sugar into the chocolate and mix until smooth. Press a piece of clingfilm onto the surface of the mixture and place it in the fridge for about an hour, or until firm enough to handle.

Tip the cocoa powder onto a plate. Dig out spoonfuls (each about the sized of a large marble) of chocolate paste and roll quickly between your palms to form rough balls resembling real truffles.

Place the balls on the plate of cocoa powder and roll them about so that they are well coated. When you’ve made all the balls, place them in a sieve or colander and shake gently to remove any excess cocoa powder.

Cover and place in the fridge for two hours, or until firm.

Tip: These freeze very well.
