Rum Balls

Rum balls are a great treat for a festive occasion.  But why not make them just any time?  Dead easy to make, only takes 20 minutes and a great tasting snack.  The only problem is stopping at just 1...


- 1/2 packet Arnotts Milk Arrowroot biscuits
- 1/2 can sweetened condensed milk
- 1 1/2 tbls cocoa powder
- 2 tbls rum
- 1/2 cup dessicated coconut
- 3 tbls dessicated coconut for coating


  1. Put the biscuits in a sealable sandwich bag and gently crush with a rolling pin
  2. Transfer to a medium sized mixing bowl and add the next 4 ingredients.  Use a sieve for the cocoa to remove lumps.
  3. Stir and combine into a stiff mixture.
  4. Use a spoon to extract enough mixture to roll into a ball a bit less than 1 inch diameter.
  5. Coat with dessicated coconut and then place onto a baking tray.
  6. Repeat for all the mixture (this quantity makes about 20 rum balls).
  7. Place the tray in the freezer for several hours and then transfer to containers for storage in the freezer.
  8. Can keep for weeks in the freezer but put them in the fridge on the day you want to eat these.
Perfect any time.
