Rum balls or "nut balls" should not be missing on any cookie plate at Christmas time. The wonderful balls are made from grated chocolate, nuts and sugar. The great thing about the preparation is that the cookies do not have to be baked, which is especially advantageous if you want to bake several cookies at once.
100 g dark chocolate 140 g grated nuts 130 g powdered sugar 2 tablespoons of rum Granulated sugar for rolling
1. First grate the chocolate into small pieces with a large grater. Then the grated nuts are mixed with the powdered sugar and chocolate.
2. Then drizzle the rum over the ingredients and knead well so that a solid mass is formed. It works best if you knead the mass with your hands, because this way the chocolate melts better.
3. Let the dough rest in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Then shape the dough into a long ball, divide it into equal pieces and form a small ball each.
4th Roll the finished balls in sugar and then store them in an airtight box.
If you prefer to prepare the recipe without rum, you can also add a squeezed orange or lemon to the batter instead. Instead of sugar, the balls can also be rolled in colorful sprinkles or desiccated coconut. The finished balls can be kept in an airtight box for about 10 days.
