Rum Balls

This is the time of the year I usually bake traditional Czech Christmas Cookies. This year I’ve decided to throw in a new addition.  I’ve chosen to make a very simple type of no-bake cookies. Rum balls! I absolutely loved them when I was a kid. My grandparents made the best ones ever!!! They are so simple and delicious. Enjoy and don’t forget that the cookies need to rest for a few days before Christmas so if you are thinking of making some this year you should do it soon!

100g unsalted butter, melted
30g icing sugar
2-3 tbsp dark rum
1 tsp rum essence
1 bar dark chocolate, melted
1 cup grated coconut
2 cups ground/crushed digestive biscuits (what I use instead – cookies that broke while decorating)

*Feel free to add crushed nuts, almonds or any leftover cookies and chocolate you might have used for decorating.
In a large bowl mix together ground biscuits/cookies, sugar, melted chocolate and butter, rum & essence. Work the dough with your hands until all is well incorporated. Wrap in plastic and leave in the refrigerator for about an hour to harden. When cooled, take a piece of the dough; roll in your hands to form balls. Roll the balls in grated coconut. Leave for a few days so flavours can blend before eating.
