Rum Truffles
Material needed-200g dark cooking chocolate, 60ml cream, 30g butter, 50g chocolate cake crumbs, 2 teaspoons dark rum, brandy or whisky, 100g dark cocoa powder

Put the chocolate in a heatproof bowl. Heat a small pan and put butter and cream in it, keep mixing it until the butter starts to melt and just starts boiling. Pour this hot mixture on the chocolate and mix it until the chocolate melts and the mixture has a smooth texture. Now, add the rum and the cake crumbs while mixing. Put it in the fridge for 20 minutes. After taken out from the fridge, roll the mixture into approximately 25 truffles. Spread dark cocoa powder on a sheet of baking paper and roll each ball in it. Line the truffles on a baking tray with foil. Refrigerate for 40 minutes.

Edible Cookies Ornaments
Material needed-1/4 cup vanilla frosting, 9 ring-shaped butter flavored cookies or any ring-shaped cookies, 1 roll (9 count) ring-shaped fruit flavored Life Savers,1 ˝ to 2 yards red string licorice or ribbon

Place the vanilla frosting in a small bowl and add the desired food color and blend it well. Now, place colored frosting in decorating bag fitted with small writing or decorator tip, or you can even put the frosting in a small resealable plastic freezer bag with 1 corner snipped off to make a very small hole for piping. Place 1 cookie on flat surface and lightly outline the center hole with frosting. Now place 1 ring-shaped candy over frosting, pressing it lightly and matching the center openings. Pipe the frosting decoratively on the cookie. Repeat with the remaining cookies and let them dry. Insert the ribbon through hole in each cookie and tie a knot or bow. You can hang these ornaments on the Christmas tree or use it to decorate packages or gift baskets.
