Recipe by Sueie

Great served after dinner with coffee, or with a picnic. Great as a gift with home made rum balls at Christmas time. Can be made up to 2 weeks ahead and stored in airtight container in refrigerator.

This is simple and delicious!! I misread the recipe and added the 1/2 cup coconut into the mix and ten rolled the balls in additional cocnut, but worked fine!! Am thinking I should not have made these 4 sleeps before Xmas, might have to make another batch for Xmas day!!!
