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 :-)

Sweet and dense, these no-bake cookie balls are worth every darn calorie. If you love coconut and chocolate, these are for you. They have a nice chocolate flavor and the coconut coating is the perfect complement. Once they're chilled, they have the perfect texture and a slight rum flavor comes through. It's like a rum ball without the harsh alcohol flavor. A beautiful addition to a dessert tray during the holidays.
rum extract or more - add a little of the time to match your own tasting.
How To Make coconut cocoa balls
Mix butter with dry ingredients - NOT the coconut.
Add half and half.
Add 1/2 Tbsp rum extract at the time and taste. Add only the amount of extract that suits your taste. The mixture must be slightly sticky. Note, that various brands of rum extract have different strengths. I prefer Oetker's.
Roll in bite-size balls.
Cover with coconut.
Keep in fridge.
