To make Chocolate truffles
Place the cream in a small saucepan and bring to simmering point, take off the heat and add the chocolate in pieces, add the rum/brandy (optional) and stir together until you have a smooth mixture. Transfer to a bowl, leave to cool, cover with cling film and put in the fridge overnight.
