Praliné recipe

On special request I am adding a praliné recipe that I have been using since I was in primary school (and that was a long time ago, trust me).

Should you find the time with all the holiday preparations, the kids love to make these because they can get their little hands full of chocolate (and so can you)! I use dark cooking chocolate such as Cailler but any good quality chocolate will do. Remember as long as the raw material/ingredient is good quality nothing go wrong, really!

6oz dark chocolate
2 oz butter
4 tablespoons rum
1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon cream

Melt the chocolate in a double boiler.
Add butter, rum, eggs and cream.
Pour mixture into a foil tray and let set in fridge for 1 - 2 hours.
Scoop out little portions with teaspoon and roll into balls in the palms of your hands (this must be done quickly in order for the chocolate not melt in your hands).
Dip balls into chocolate sprinkles or chocolate powder.
