Christmas Rumballs Recipe
A Christmas classic recipe, rum balls made simple with just five ingredients.
Dairy-free and vegan this traditional Australian treat will surely be a crowd pleaser this December.
LET'S GET RUM-BALLING...
These rum balls are a simple and quick recipe that you can whip up in 5 minutes. However, you will need to set this mixture in the fridge overnight. Right, let's get to it!
Start by crushing your Weet-Bix into a fine crumb, leaving some little chunky bits for texture and crunch. The easiest way to do this is by hand. However you could opt for a food processor here, just be careful not to over-blend them.
Add in the coconut and cacao powder, and mix until combined. Next pour in the coconut condensed milk and rum. Mix together until a sticky chocolate mixture is formed.
Now this is it important bit...in order to roll this mix into ball you must refrigerate this mix. So pour this mixture into an air-tight container and store in your fridge overnight or for a minimum of 4 hours.
Once refrigerated you will notice the coconut condensed milk has hardened and created the perfect consistency for rolling. I hope you aren't afraid of getting your hands dirty!
Press together 2 tablespoon of mixure between your hands and begin to roll into a ball. Lastly, coat in fine coconut. This recipe typically makes 16 balls, depending on how large or small they are made.
Store these rum balls in your fridge for up to 2 weeks. But let's be honest...they won't last that long... ;)
