Here’s the answer to what to do with leftover panettone after the Christmas holidays: Mix it with milk, rum, sugar, coconut, hazelnuts, and cocoa, form into balls, and coat in mint-infused melted chocolate. Sprinkle with flaked coconut, chill until set, and you’ve got truffles that are unlike anything from a store. They’ll keep in the refrigerator for a few days, but be sure to let them reach room temperature before serving, for maximum flavor.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 panettone
  • 100 milliliters milk
  • 50 milliliters rum
  • 80 grams sugar
  • 20 grams coconut
  • 10 grams cocoa (bittersweet)
  • 1 handful hazelnuts (shelled and toasted, chopped coarsely)
  • 150 grams dark chocolate
  • 3 drops mint syrup

Directions

  1. Cut the panettone into pieces and combine it with the milk, rum, sugar, coconut, hazelnuts, and cocoa. The resulting mixture should be uniform in consistency. Refrigerate it for a few hours.
  2. Shape the mixture into balls the size of a walnut and freeze for approximately 1 hour.
  3. Melt the chocolate over a double boiler, add a few drops of mint syrup and coat the truffles.
  4. Place the truffles on a wax paper-lined baking sheet, decorate with a sprinkling of coconut flakes on top.
  5. Once the chocolate has set, place them in truffle liners.
  6. The truffles can be kept in the refrigerator for several days.

Not being a huge fan of panettone, this recipe served my goal of repurposing it and finding a way to enjoy it. I do suggest freezing the balls for at least a couple of hours, even though the recipe only calls for one hour. This way they were nice and firm and kept from falling apart.
