First of all, heat up the heavy whipping cream in the saucepan over medium heat until boiling. In the large bowl, prepare the dark chocolate by breaking it into the small pieces. When the heavy whipping cream is heated enough, pour the cream over the chocolate and stir it with the whisk until the chocolate is completely melted.

After that, add rum and stir again until all ingredients are well combined and smooth. You should then put it in the fridge for at least six hours. When it is chilled, use a spoon and take out small pieces of cold ganache and make round balls by pressing and rolling the truffles between the palms of your hands.

You can roll half of the truffles in the cocoa and for the rest, you can add chocolate sprinkles! And the amazing dessert is done! Your guests will love it!
