Introduction

There are a few set-in-stone Christmas traditions in my house, and many of them involve food.
I know, you’re shocked, right?

One of them is the batch of Rum Balls that I make for my husband every year. He loves rum and I don’t so these are always a treat that he looks forward to, safe in the knowledge that he won’t have to share with me.
But the rum balls of old, with an ingredients list that reads like “sugar, sugar, a different kind of sugar, sugar and rum” aren’t going to cut it anymore.

I didn’t make any last year but was determined to create some this year.
Guys, these rum balls are so good that even I ate them (ha, ha to you, hubby!) they have that familiar soft mouth-feel and all of those yummy chocolate and rum flavours.

These would make a wonderful gift for someone who is living a sugar free life and is hard to buy for.
They’re quick and easy and use basic ingredients.

Now, I’d better make another batch…since I sampled most of these.

Enjoy!
