Mini Rum Balls
Don't know what to do with it?
Here's a solution......
I love to bake and I have this perennial problem of finishing up the products. Not that my family doesn't like cakes or other baked stuffs, it's the calorie count that bothers them. ;p
Sometimes I give away, sometimes I freeze, sometimes I 'recycle'???
I MAKE RUM BALLS and it never fails - they are snapped up within a day or two....hmmm.....
What I used:
About 250g leftover cake
50g cherries (I omitted this - didn't want the extra sweetness)
80g walnuts, chopped (I used walnuts only)
80g almond, roasted and chopped
2 teaspoons cocoa or less, diluted with a little water to paste (I used 100g cooking chocolate, melted)
1 tablespoon rum or rum-flavoured paste (for those who can't take rum)
Some condensed milk enough to bind the mixture (I used some leftover buttercream)
Some chocolate rice or desiccated coconut
What I did:
1. Put everything into a mixing bowl and mix till combined.
2. Roll mixture into balls.
3. Roll in chocolate rice or coconut.
If you want a more chocolatey taste, roll the balls in some melted chocolate and then roll in chocolate rice. (The chocolate rice sticks better)
4. Refrigerate to store. Serve any time.
