  • 2 cups sweet biscuits , crushed
  • 1 cup dried mixed fruit, chopped
  • 1/2 cup desiccated cocount
  • 3 tbsp rum
  • 1/2 tin condensed milk
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • extra cocount


  1. Combine all the ingredients, adding rum and enough condensed milk to the mixture to make a firm dough. Roll into balls about one tablespoonful of mixture. Roll balls in extra coconut and placevin fridge until firm. Eat and enjoy
  2. For extra flavour, chop the fruit and soak in rum for a day before making the rum balls. Double the recipe for more rum balls

  • Make something like this, the fruit is soaked for a few months to get the flavour in.


  • I love making these but without the rum for the little ones


  • Great rum ball recipe. The only trouble is when I make these I will eat too many. I will soak the fruit for this one as step 2 states. It gives a flavour boost.


  • I love this Christmas version of the classic rum ball. Will need to remember this for next Christmas as they would make a great gift idea.


  • I remember learning to make these less fruit in cooking class in high school!


  • Haven’t had these for ages! look good.


  • Always reliable rum balls – a good Christmas and special time treat.

    • These are so good to have when friends and family pop around – makes them happy.


  • yes they are really easy to make great to have just in case friends drop in least you have something to give to them


  • Rum balls are always fantastic at Christmas! Thanks.


  • I’m going to make these for christmas – such a great tradition rum balls – my girls like the non rum ones of course! so I will have to make two batches! – thank you for your recipe
