@BigMama1 Here’s the recipe for the pina colada truffles:
Pina Colada Truffles
12 oz packaage of milk chocolate chips
1/2 C heavy whipping cream
2 Tbs butter
4 Tbs coconut rum
1/2 C shredded coconut
1/2 C chopped dried pineapple (I buy the dried pineapple and have to chop it into smaller pieces. Keeping the knife blade oiled makes thi job easier.)
Soak pineapple in coconut rum overnight. (Or for a few hours)
Melt the chocolate in a the top of a double boiler. Warm the cream in a separate pan and add the butter until butter melts. Slowly add the butter/cream mixture to the melted chocolate, stirring constantly. Add the coconut rum, coconut, and pineapple to the melted chocolate and mix thoroughly. Put the mixture into the refrigerator to chill. (I usually let it sit overnight.)
When you are ready to make the truffles, use a melon baller to scoop out a ball. Quickly roll it in your hands to form a round ball. Put truffles in refrigerator firm up. After you have made and chilled all the truffles, you can either roll them in coconut or dip them in white, milk, or semi-sweet chocolate. Sprinkle a little coconut on top for decoration.
It seems that these may go well with the Coquitos drink. But what do I know, I’m just an amatuer chocolatier.
And please note, this is my own recipe, whereas all my others are taken from cook books, magazines and newspapers.
