Christmas Edibles Continued..

 Here's another family favourite of mine that never goes astray at Christmas...the good old Rum Ball! I'm not particularly a fan of chunks of raisin and nuts in my Rum Balls, so here's a smoothy...you can add your glace cherries and so forth if you prefer...and certainly, increase the rum and make them a little more boozy! These are also fantastic as gifts, in tiny truffle cups, boxed and tied with ribbon.



CREAMY RUM BALLS

7oz Milk Arrowroot Biscuits
2 tbsp. cocoa powder
1/2 cup powdered milk
1/2 cup coconut
400g can sweetened condensed milk
3 tbsp. rum
extra coconut

Crush biscuits with a rolling pin until they resemble fine crumbs. Combine all ingredients together in a bowl, mixing well until combined. Shape mixture into walnut-sized balls, rolling each in extra coconut until covered. Place in refrigerator until firm.

Makes 30.
