What can I say? I LOVE these Raw Spiced Rum Balls. They’re crazy yummy and way healthier than traditional rum balls. If you’re trying to stay skinny this Christmas, but want something relatively guilt free on the table to enjoy – these are for you.
I recommend using Kraken or a vanilla based spiced rum for them, and make them the night before so the flavours have time to develop.
Add dates, sultanas, rum and orange juice to an airtight container for 1 hour to soak. Shake periodically.
Add all ingredients to mixer bowl, blend 15 sec/speed 8 using spatula to combine.
Use spatula to redistribute ingredients, and blend for another 15 sec/speed 8/MC on.
Shape into walnut sized balls and coat with desiccated coconut.
Refrigerate overnight for best flavor.
Makes ~30 walnut sized rum ballsYou can use dark rum if you prefer, or substitute the rum with orange juice for a non alcoholic versionI highly recommend you make these at least the night before, for the flavors to develop - they taste very strong to begin with but once the alcohol has a chance to develop it lessens.Bellini UsersUse your sharp blade for this recipe.At step 3 increase chopping time if required.
