Christmas Rum Balls
I must admit to being a bit of a Christmas Grinch, but my Mum visiting from Queensland and the mention of her rum balls got me in a more festive mood today. What are we going to do with the remaining Bundy Rum? Merry Christmas everyone - hope you are making lots of travel plans over the holidays.
Here is the video and Mum's recipe below....
3/4 cup sultanas
1/4 cup rum
1 tin sweetened condensed milk (250 ml)
1/4 cup desiccated or shredded coconut and a bit more to roll the balls in
2 1/2 tablespoons coco
Marinade sultanas overnight in rum.
In a large bowl crush wheatbix with fingers or using end of rolling pin
Add coco and coconut and mix together.
Add sultanas and sweetened condensed milk and mix very well.
Put in fridge for at least 1 hour.
Using a teaspoon, take a portion of the mixture and form into a tight ball using your hands.
Roll balls in extra coconut and put in a container that is stored in the fridge.
