Healthy and easy rum candy

I would like to share with you another great holiday recipe… well, I could eat these all year long…

Rum sweets (1 of 1)-9


80 grams (3 oz) mixed raw walnuts and almonds (all other nuts could be used) – finely minced/shredded/crushed

80 grams (3 oz) graham cracker biscuits (vanilla)

60 grams (2 oz) powdered sugar

1 tablespoon cocoa powder 

1 tablespoon light corn syrup or honey

30 ml rum (baileys or other alcohol of your choice)

Nutmeg (Optional)

Cinnamon (Optional)

Mini chocolate chips (Optional)


Powdered sugar

Finely chopped nuts

Coconut flakes

Cocoa powder

Melted chocolate 

Rum sweets (1 of 1)-2

Add the nuts and biscuits to a large bowl.

To this mixture add the powdered sugar, cocoa powder, the corn syrup and the rum and mix well.

Chill the batter for 30 minutes in your fridge and then shape into small balls.

Then roll the balls in sugar, finely chopped nuts, coconut flakes or cocoa powder or dip them in melted chocolate.

Place the chocolate covered balls on a baking sheet and transfer in your refrigerator until the chocolate has set.

Tip: You can sprinkle the dipped chocolate balls with coconut flakes, shredded chocolate or other topping, but make sure to do that while they are still coated with the melted chocolate, before you place them in the fridge.

Can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for several weeks.

Makes about 40 small balls.
