Fig Truffles With Rum

  • Author: Balkan Lunch Box
  • Prep Time: 45 mins
  • Total Time: 45 mins
  • Yield: 7-8 1x
  • Category: Dessert


  • 7 ounces dried figs (ground in a meat grinder)
  • 5 ounces dark or baking chocolate (grated)
  • 5 ounces powdered sugar
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 teaspoon rum
  • 2 ounces almonds (coarsely ground or finely chopped)


  1. Wet your hands to prevent from sticking. (You may have to do this a few times while you form truffles.) Combine all ingredients into a bowl. Mix well with hands until the ingredients are well integrated and have a consistency of play dough. Form little balls (the size should be between a golf ball and a marble).
  2. Prepare a bowl with almonds, and roll each ball around in it. Cover a flat surface (or a baking sheet) with baking paper. Line the balls on the sheet, cover with a kitchen towel and leave in a cool place to toughen.
  3. Once toughened, transfer them to a cookie box or a container. Keep in a cool place or fridge. Consume within a week.


Substitute almonds with walnuts or hazelnuts as another option. You’ll end up with about 15-17 truffles. Serving size is about 2-3.
