Rum Balls

'Tis the season... so here it is, my Christmas rum ball recipe! While you couldn't class these rum balls as 'healthy', they're certainly better than their traditional counter-parts (and a good deal tastier I think!). If you're like me and don't like rum, this recipe works just as well without it- then they just become hazelnut truffles, mmm...

Rum Balls

2 and 3/4 C LSA
1/4 C cocoa powder
1 x 400g tin skim sweetened condensed milk
1/2 C chopped roasted hazelnuts
4 Tbsp dark rum (or amount to your liking)
To coat:
Cocoa powder
Chopped hazelnuts
Desiccated coconut
Chia seeds

  1. Combine all ingredients and mix well. 
  2. Refrigerate for at least 30mins so the mixture firms up and is easier to roll into balls.
  3. Pour all coating ingredients into separate bowls and keep another bowl of water handy (for when your hands get too sticky!).
  4. Roll heaped teaspoons of mixture into balls then coat in cocoa powder. Roll the second spoonful in chopped hazelnuts, the third in coconut, the fourth in chia seeds and so on.
  5. Keep refrigerated.
Makes  a lot (~60) balls. You can halve the recipe if that's too much. But they're great as a Christmas gift!
