Rum-coconut balls

Soft, delicious and fudgy coconut balls, that will make you fall in love with them!

These balls are an amazing quick treat, that is just perfect for the holiday season or any other time of year. We always make a huge batch of these heavenly delicious balls, because they are gone in minutes! All our friends and family love them, so we always add them to our Christmas gifts.

They are our favorite treat to make around Christmas and for birthdays. They are really easy to make and the best part is that there is no baking needed to make these wonderful balls! Rum and coconut make a perfect combo. Add cacao and you have a heavenly snack with a rich flavour that you can’t resist.

To make these balls you will need:

  • vegan butter biscuits – we used biscuits from Veganz, because they have a nice buttery taste,
  • powdered sugar – it’s better than granulated sugar, because it makes a very smooth texture,
  • shredded coconut – it’s one of the main ingredients, and you can also use it to cover balls with it,
  • cacao powder– for delicious chocolaty taste,
  • margarine – it has to be room temperature and it adds a rich flavour,
  • rum – a hint of rum is what makes them so incredibly good,
  • coconut oil – so they can nicely firm in the fridge and get the perfect texture.

We always cover balls with shredded coconut, but you can also cover them with melted chocolate or some cacao powder.
