You are going to love this candy recipe inspired by The Princess Bride - Spiced Rum Truffles Miracle Pill. See the how-to video tutorial.When Inigo Montoya and Fezzik find Westley dead in the Pit of Dispair, they take him to see Miracle Max (played by Billy Crystal) looking for nothing other than, well, a miracle. Miracle Max tells them that he needs to know what Westley has to live for.

Inigo Montoya: He’s dead. He can’t talk.

Miracle Max: Whoo-hoo-hoo, look who knows so much. It just so happens that your friend here is only MOSTLY dead. There’s a big difference between mostly dead and all dead. Mostly dead is slightly alive.

So, Miracle Max uses a fireplace bellow to push air into Westely to find out his reason for living — true love.

Miracle Max: Sonny, true love is the greatest thing in the world – except for a nice MLT – mutton, lettuce, and tomato sandwich, where the mutton is nice and lean and the tomatoes are ripe. [smacks his lips]

Miracle Max: They’re so perky, I love that.

Miracle Max and his wife, Valerie, proceed in making a Miracle Pill that will restore Westley’s life. And that is the inspiration for this yummy recipe!

Valerie: The chocolate coating makes it go down easier, but you have to wait fifteen minutes for full potency, and he shouldn’t go in swimming after for at least–

Miracle Max: An hour–

Valerie: Yeah, an hour–

Miracle Max: A good hour.
