The must have sweet at a Christmas event, or really any event. Rum balls serve as the easy to make, delicious to eat sweet. they are easy to eat and easy to serve – thus making it the entertainers best friend!
1 packet crushed biscuits (scotch finger, milk arrowroot, or if your feeling adventurous chocolate ripple or ginger nut!)
1 tin condensed milk
2 tablespoons cocoa
1/2 cup coconut + extra to roll
1 cup mixed fruit
2 tablespoons of rum
Crush the biscuits in either a food processor or by hand – place in large zip lock bag and bash with a rolling pin.
Mix in all other ingredients.
Roll into balls and roll in coconut.
Store in fridge or freezer for as long as they last! Haha in the freezer at least 3 months, but no matter how good you hide them, they will be found and will be eaten!
Makes about 24
If making them on a particularly hot day, as I always seem to manage, putting the mix into the fridge for 30mins makes them easier to roll.
