▷ Get Ready for Christmas: Easy Rum Balls | Holiday recipe
It's not Christmas without this traditional Chocolate Rum Balls recipe! So easy to make, so delicious to eat, they make the perfect after-dinner treat.
I love to whip up a batch of these easy rum balls with coconut at Christmas time. They keep well in the fridge and spruced up with festive sprinkles, they make a lovely homemade gift for neighbours and friends also.
Traditionally rum balls were made with leftover stale cake mixed in with chocolate and alcohol to bring it back to life.
This easy rum balls recipe using crushed biscuits will be familiar to anyone who grew up in the 1970s and 1980s and is probably very similar to the one your mum or grandma made.
I hope it brings back many happy festive memories!

- 500 gr. Marble cake
- 200 gr. Marzipan paste
- 200 gr. cream
- 4 ml Natural Rum, Flavouring Essence
- 100 gr. Chocolate drops
- 300 gr. chocolate sprinkles
1. First, we take our 500g marble cake and cut it into slices. After this is done, we cut the slices into cubes and put these marble cake cubes into a bigger bowl.
2. Next, we take 200g marzipan paste and cut it also into slices. Press each slice a little bit flat and cut them also into smaller cubes.
3. Then we add the marzipan pieces to the marble cake and mix everything together properly. Now we add 200g of conventional whipped cream and 4 ml Rum Flavouring Essence if you like.
4. This whole mass is now properly mixed together. If you like the rum balls chocolaty, add 100g of chocolate drops into the dough now.
5. Next take a new bowl and fill it with chocolate sprinkles. We use about 300 grams here. Now shape the dough into a ball and roll it into the chocolate sprinkles, until the whole ball is covered with chocolate sprinkles from every side.
6. Afterwards you best put the rum balls in the fridge overnight, so that they can develop their taste. In this way, they become really juicy and delicious.
7. Now, the homemade rum balls are ready and are ready to eat.
