Christmas is upon us yet again and we know how hectic things can be. With so much to do and gifts to buy, keep things simple and heart felt with a home made gift. Rum Balls are a perrenial favourite- and we are going to let you in on a little secret... the tastiest ones are made with WeetBix! its true! This recipe was given to my Auntie by an old lady who lived next door to her. When we would visit my Auntie we would make these and devour the lot- even though we were only kids!


Preparation Time: 15 minutes Makes: 15
2 tbs rum (any type of the dark variety) 2 tbs cocoa 9 WeetBix 1/2 cup dessicated coconut, plus extra for rolling 1 cup sultanas 1 tin condensed milk

  1. Break up the WeetBix using the end of a rolling pin to crush them into small pieces
  2. Add all the dry ingredients and mix well
  3. Add the rum and the condensed milk. Mix with hands until well combined and place in the fridge for about 30 minutes to harden
  4. Remove from fridge and roll the mixture into balls, toss the balls in coconut until well covered. Refrigerate.
* Adjust the rum to taste. You can also leave it out all together for a kid friendly treat * If you make a double batch, its easier just to make two separate batches as its difficult to combine all the ingredients and the mixture tends to stick together when you need to roll it.
