Do you have any Christmas traditions at your house? One of ours is to make these glazed Cherry Rum balls. We make them normally around the 23rd of December, then we go and look at the Christmas lights and once home we have 1 or 2 or 3 of these with a cup of tea! What a way to end a night hey?
1 Packet Arrowroot Biscuits
395 grams condensed milk
1/2 cup glazed cherries
1/4 cup Cadbury Cocoa
1 tablespoon Rum
1 Cup coconut
Coconut for rolling
1 drop green food dye
1 drop red food dye
Pop the cherries in a bowl with the rum and set aside.
Pop the arrowroot biscuits and coconut into a food processor and blitz well.
Add the cocoa and the cherries and run and blitz
add the condensed mil and combine until well mixed.
Add coconut and red dye to a zip lock bag and shake, repeat with the green dye in another bag.
Roll the mixture into approx 1 and 1/2 inch balls.
Mix the red and green coconut together and roll balls in them.
Makes approx 30 balls.
Tip: You don't have to colour the coconut this is something we just do because it is Christmas. if you want them to be more vibrant in colour add more red and green dye. You can also add more run if you like!
