White Chocolate, Cardamon and Rum Truffles

***warning*** these are addictive and seriously calorific. But make them anyway 🙂 They are the perfect counter to the dark chocolate and orange truffles I am making for Christmas petit fours.

For about 12 you need:
seeds from 7 cardamom pods
200g good quality white chocolate, broken into pieces
25g unsalted butter
150ml double cream
1 tbsp white rum
50g icing sugar

Grind the cardamon seeds to a powder. Heat the cream till just about boiling. Pour over the chocolate, rum, cardamon and butter. Whisk with an electric whisk until ribbons form (about 5 mins). Once smooth, chill till starting to harden. Roll in to balls and then roll these in the icing sugar.
