2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons heavy cream
2 tablespoons seedless raspberry jam
1 tablespoon rum
1/2 cup [45g] unsweetened cocoa powder (for coating truffles)
Combine all ingredients except cocoa powder in top of double boiler over low heat, stirring constantly until melted and smooth. Chill at least 3 hours or until firm enough to handle.
Form into one-inch balls, using a scoop or teaspoon. Roll in cocoa until coated; refrigerate until ready to serve.
Microwave instructions: Combine all ingredients except unsweetened cocoa powder in small microproof bowl. Heat at medium power (50% or level 5) for 2-3 minutes, stirring well after each minute initially, then at 30-second intervals until mixture is smooth. Proceed as directed above.
