These are Wonderful!!!!!
Yet another fantastic chuck it in and pour it out recipe.
LESSON: Yes!! there IS enough in the recipe. Don't be a doubting Thomas and make a double lot like I did (although our guests didn't mind taking the rest home). Not ever having made the real rum balls before - only ever the cheating bikkie/cocoa/condensed milk version... I didn't realise how rich these were. One or two per person with coffee and port is just enough.
HINT: Hooley Dooley... they're strong tho... re-think the amount of rum if you are not really a rum person LOL
LESSON: don't roll them into balls with your hands. The warmth of your hands will make them start to melt. It works! don't get me wrong... it just makes a hell of a mess. Use two spoons and make blobs that way, or use a melon baller perhaps??
HINT: they are really best REALLY cold
HINT: if you display them with strawberries like below... make sure the strawberries are REALLY dry - see the darker spot on one of the rum balls??
