Chocolate Rum Balls

December 22, 2011

Yesterday I made the 11th (and I’m sad to say) final cookie flavor for this year’s cookie collection. We have always made rum balls in the past but they’re not really a family favorite as most people in my family don’t like rum. But being the good sister that I am, I made these especially for my older brother Alex, who I know doesn’t mind the taste of rum that much… he better appreciate my effort! I also included lots of nuts (healthy fat) to make up for the unhealthy fat from the chocolate and cream.

Rum Balls

makes about 50 rum balls

You will need:

  • 1/8 l cream
  • 300g dark chocolate, chopped
  • 200g grated nuts (walnuts or hazelnuts)
  • 4 cl rum
  • desiccated coconut
  • chocolate sprinkles
  1. In a pan, heat up the cream and wait for it to boil. Then turn down the heat.
  2. Add the chocolate and stir until the mixture is smooth.
  3. Then add the nuts and rum. Mix well.
  4. Let the mixture cool for a couple of minutes. It should then have the perfect consistency to form small balls.
  5. After forming the balls roll them in chocolate sprinkles or desiccated coconut.
  6. Store in an airtight container.
