DirectionsHeat cream, sugar, salt, rum and vanilla in medium saucepan over medium heat until sugar is dissolved and mixture is hot.
Remove from heat; add chocolates, stirring until melted, ( return pan to low heat if necessary). Pour into shallow dish. Cover and refrigerate until just firm, about 1 hour.Shape about half the mixture into 1 1/4 inch balls. Shape remaining mixture into 3/4 inch balls. Roll balls in nuts and sprinkles.
Refrigerate truffles until firm, about 1 hour.Cover cone with foil. Starting at bottom of cone, attach larger truffles with wooden toothpicks.
Use smaller truffles toward the top of the cone. Refrigerate until serving time.Note:
If kitchen is very warm, keep portion of truffle mixture chilled as you shape and roll balls.
I arranged mine onto a large dinner plate. A cake plate would be good. You can find the tree cones at any craft store, or even Walmart.
This makes a nice centerpiece also..everyone will be in awe!
