I have limited myself just making these around Christmas, because they are so loaded with calories. As a little girl I made these with my Danish grandma... so at Christmas time I always remember the wonderful time I had with her and my mom as well :-).
My friends love it when I wrap some up as a gift... Even though I keep them in the fridge they somehow evaporate in a blink of an eye.. Enjoy - I do :-)

How to Make coconut cocoa balls

Step-by-Step

  1. mix butter with dry ingredients - NOT the coconut
  2. add half and half. Add 1/2 Tbs rum extract at the time and taste. Add only the amount of extract that suits your taste. And note that various brands of rum extract has different strengths. I prefer Oetker's. The mixture must be slightly sticky.
  3. roll in bite size balls and cover with coconut.
    Keep in fridge.
