How to Make coconut cocoa balls
- mix butter with dry ingredients - NOT the coconut
- 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.
- roll in bite size balls and cover with coconut.
Keep in fridge.
