Christmas Fruit Cake Truffles
Leftover fruit cake (I had half of a small cake)
200gm good quality dark chocolate
1 tbs butter
Extra melted chocolate to top
Crumble fruit cake. Melt chocolate and add butter. Mix into crumbled cake. Put in fridge to harden for about 30 mins. Form into 1" balls. Top with melted chocolate or ganache (which is what I used) and cachous, sprinkles, chopped nuts. You can add a nip of your favourite liqueur if they're for adults only. Keep refrigerated.
Makes 20 truffles.
