These choc-rum balls are one of my ‘go to’ recipes for a dessert or bite sized snack. It meets all my requirements for baking – easy to make, not too many ingredients, super tasty + mourish and actually doesn’t require any baking. They make a perfect treat for Christmas entertaining, I think it’s the coconut, it makes you think of snow.rum balls9rum balls6
