Here come the Rum Balls!

Nothing says Christmas to me more than rum soaked cream cheese! Just joking, but really, who can resist? Creamy, rich, and only mildly alcoholic.  These are ideal to serve for any occasion, and impress most folks. Or maybe that’s just the rum talking. Either way, they are so worth the little effort they take. And if you really want to impress your friends, co-workers or neighbours, make up a batch of these, fancy them up in some pretty foil cups and you have yourself a present that will be remembered.

Red & Green Christmas Rum Balls

Red & Green Christmas Rum Balls


What you will need:

 1 block cream cheese, softened

1 cup ground almonds

1 1/2  cup icing sugar

1 tsp powdered instant coffee

1/4 cup dark rum

5  squares unsweetened chocolate, melted

COATINGS:  chocolate sprinkles, shredded or toasted coconut, icing sugar, crushed almonds, cocoa powder, fancy colored sugars, or whatever your little heart desires.

Blend cream cheese, ground almonds, coffee, icing sugar and rum together with melted chocolate. Chill in fridge for twenty minutes or so, or until slightly firm. Shape into 1 inch balls.

Choose what you would like to coat the rum balls in, and place coatings on plates in front of you. Roll rumballs around in coatings fairly firmly, making sure you get nice full coverage on each rumball.

  1. Thank you so much for this recipe! I had had fabulous chocolate rum balls in Chicago once, but whenever I tried recreating them, I was let down. UNTIL I tried your recipe. Heaven! A keeper for the rest of my Christmases!

  2. Installing ceramic tiles or, for a more contemporary
    look, large porcelain wall tiles with matching ceramic tiles will instantly update your bathroom’s image. Because of the large number of people suffering from adult asthma, proactively using green and eco-friendly products including lime plaster walls to enhance indoor air quality will yield health dividends in the long run.
