Holiday Rum Balls

Rum Balls yet again for me brings back childhood memory of christmas times. Naoums made the best rum balls in my city and my association for rum balls always goes to that. However my recipe is heavily altered and has no cake in it.


  • Bittersweet chocolate chips - 14oz
  • 1/2 cup dark rum
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • Almond powder (optional)
  • Chopped walnuts (optional)


  • Melt the chocolate in double boiler. string in between ensuring it doesn't burn
  • Add caster sugar and stir well till sugar is completely mixed
  • Remove from heat and add the rum
  • Let it cool, refrigerate for 30 mins if required before rolling
  • Take a little rum in a bowl, some chocolate jimmies in another, shredded coconut
  • Roll the chocolate into balls, dip in rum and then roll in chocolate jimmies or shredded coconut and save for serving
  • Njoy!!
