Rum balls

My sister invented this recipe and they are the yummiest rum balls I’ve ever tasted. I highly recommend these for your next Christmas celebration – they’re sure to be a hit with your guests!

Rum balls


  • 1 pack Milk Arrowroot biscuits, finely crushed
  • 2 tabs cocoa
  • 1 cup sultanas
  • ½ cup desiccated coconut
  • Extra desiccated coconut, or chocolate sprinkles, to decorate
  • 1 tin condensed milk
  • ⅓ cup Bundaberg rum


  1. Remove sultana pedicels (stems). This step is optional, but rum balls are much nicer when you don’t need to chew on hard little stems!
  2. Soak fruit in rum until liquid is absorbed (overnight is best).
  3. Mix cocoa, desiccated coconut, sultanas and crushed Arrowroot biscuits until well combined.
  4. Add condensed milk and, if desired, more rum to taste. Refrigerate until firm.
  5. Roll mixture into small balls, then toss them in the chocolate sprinkles (or extra desiccated coconut if preferred).
  6. Refrigerate the rum balls until ready to serve.
