My Mum's Rum Balls


6 people made this

About this recipe: We always had rum balls at Christmas and Easter when I was a kid. Now I use them as an easy, bite-size traditional addition to Christmas Day but with the no-cook advantage. They're quick to make and the adults get all nostalgic while the kids wolf them down.


Serves: 6 

  • 450g of maderia cake crumbs
  • 400g of condensed milk
  • 1 cup of dessicated coconut
  • ½ cup of cocoa powder
  • 1-2 tablespoons of rum
  • Extra dessicated coconut for decoration

Prep:5min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  1. Crumble the cake in a food processor and place the crumbs in a large bowl with all ingredients. Mix together. Start with one tablespoon of rum and add more to help it bind.
  2. Shape mixture into small walnut-sized balls.
  3. Roll the balls in dessicated coconut and place on large plate in the fridge. Chill till firm and keep refrigerated in a closed container once firm.
