Today we made "Rumballs" (or as in today's batch "Butterscotch Schnapps Balls"). They are so easy to make and so delicious to eat and great for little hands who love to help in the kitchen.

The recipe:

1 packet Marie biscuits
1 tin condensed milk
2 tsp cocoa
2 lidfuls of Rum (or other alcohol)

Mix all ingredients together (except the coconut)
Roll into teaspoon size balls
Roll in coconut

Eat, refrigerate or freeze for a future occasion.

The alcohol is optional if little hands are helping or eating, but for me personally I always add it as the alcohol content of each rumball would be negligible.

A handy hint when rolling the rumballs is to have a sink full of warm water nearby.  The rumballs get very sticky and hard to roll, washing your hands occasionally makes the job a lot easier.

Today I decided to freeze the rumballs. I used a re-purposed meat tray (I'd run out of plastic containers).




  1. Oh yum! I haven't made rum balls in years. Not sure if ours would make it to the freezer though.

  2. We are having a birthday party here this weekend so I had to freeze them immediately otherwise I wouldn't have any left. Another batch or two being made today.

  3. Yum! They look delicious and so simple to make.

    1. So easy, just made another batch, these ones are bacardi balls.
