These are melt in your mouth, truffle like balls that can be served alone or used to decorate cakes. Handle them gently, though, as they are delicate to the touch. If you want sturdier rum balls for traveling, you can add an extra half of a cake to the recipeSource: Unknown

How to Make White Chocolate Coffee Rum Balls

Step-by-Step

  • 1Process the cake pieces to crumbs in a food processor about 1 minute.
  • 2Mix rum and coffee, pour over the cake and process 10 seconds more. Add pecans into the processor bowl.
  • 3Put chocolate in a glass bowl and microwave on high for 20 seconds, mix with a fork and add to the processor bowl. Process til a ball forms. Spread in a shallow pan or bowl and refrigerate til set, overnight works best.
  • 4Scoop out 1 inch balls with a melon baller or small ice cream scoop, and put on a platter or baking sheet. They are very delicate so return them to the refrigerator until hard again.
  • 5To coat balls, put the cocoa, powdered sugar or almonds in a plastic zipper bag. Add a few balls at a time and shake gently to coat completely. Serve at once or refrigerate til ready to serve. The balls will hold their shape as long as they are not touched by warm hands.
