Line a baking tray with baking paper. To make the truffle mixture, place the biscuits in a food processor and process until finely crushed. Transfer the biscuit crumbs to a large bowl. Add the coconut, rum, condensed milk and cocoa powder to the biscuit crumbs and stir until well combined to get a fudge-like texture. Alternatively, to make truffles without adding alcohol, replace the dark rum or Malibu coconut rum with ¼ cup (60ml) thickened cream. 2. For even-sized truffles, roll heaped teaspoonfuls of biscuit mixture into balls and place on the lined tray. For a chewy texture, place in the fridge for 1 hour or until truffles are firm. Place the dark chocolate melts in a medium heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water, making sure the bottom of the bowl doesn’t touch the water. Stir with a metal spoon until chocolate melts evenly and is smooth. Repeat with white and milk chocolate melts in separate heatproof bowls. 3. To evenly coat the truffles, use a fork to dip 1 truffle in melted dark chocolate. Tap on the edge of the bowl to remove excess. Place on the prepared tray. Repeat with remaining truffles, alternating between dark, white and milk chocolate. Allow to set for 30 mins. Place remaining chocolate in separate sealable plastic bags. Cut off 1 corner. Drizzle the dark truffles with white chocolate and the white truffles with dark chocolate. Dust milk chocolate truffles with cocoa powder.
