How to Make Truffle Tree


  1. Heat 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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!
