Aussie Christmas Rum Balls

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by An_Net

This recipe has been used in our family for many years. It uses everyday ingredients and comes together in just a few minutes. I looked for similar on 'Zaar and couldn't find anything. Charlotte J has advised that Vita Brits (I prefer these to Weet-Bix) are available in the US @

Made these for a party and they disappeared within 35 minutes. Very, very nice.
