These truffles are very dense, fudgy, and very delicious. With lots of dark chocolate, dark cocoa powder, and rum, they are nothing short of a very fragrant truffle. And, they have a secret ingredient – mashed potatoes! Of course, unseasoned mashed potatoes, because any other kind wouldn’t work as well.
Potatoes are rather neutral in flavour on their own, so the addition of chocolate and other goodies makes them a perfect dessert. Other than hazelnuts, you can use honey roasted peanuts, dark cocoa powder, or even just icing sugar to decorate the truffles.
