  • 3 ounces raisins about 1/4 cup
  • 1/4 cup dark rum
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 12 ounces dark chocolate



  1. Chop the raisins, cutting each raisin into quarters. Place in a small bowl and add rum. Set aside.
  2. Fill a pot about 1/3 full of water and bring it to a simmer. Place a heat-proof bowl (like stainless steel) over the pot and add cream to it. Heat until warm, but not boiling.
  3. Turn off heat and add butter and chocolate to cream. Stir until chocolate melts. (Remove bowl from top of pot if that makes it easier to stir.)
  4. Add rum-raisin mixture to chocolate and stir well. Press plastic wrap onto the surface of the chocolate and leave at room temperature at least 6 hours (or overnight).


  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Scoop out balls of the mixture using a small cookie scoop or two spoons and place on prepared baking sheet.
  3. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes before serving.
