Rum balls (including a non rum, and a peppermint variation!)

Now these are the yummiest, most easiest things to make. I've had the flu recently, so I've been taking it very easy with my experiments, and making some very comforting things. Perfect for a couple of desultory flu ridden folk. Oh goodness, I can't wait to feel better. But - you're not here to listen to my whining about my various maladies- bring on the sweet stuff! As we speak, I have some dough in the fridge, and can't wait for another go at Turkish pides tomorrow evening. I made Salmon cakes tonight - I'll blog them tomorrow - they are the most wonderful, comforting meal in the world.


1 packet girl guide biscuits (or a packet of Arnott's Nice or Marie biscuits)
1 tin (395g) condensed milk
1/2 cup shredded coconut
2 tablespoon cocoa
1 tsp rum essence (optional, or you could use 1 tsp peppermint essence instead)

1/2 cup shredded coconut to roll them in


  1. Crush all ingredients together and mix.
  2. Shape into balls, and roll in coconut (the peppermint ones I rolled in some flaked chocolate, since I have some hanging around)
  3. Refrigerate overnight to let the flavours mix in together
