What’s round, chocolate-y, easy to make and free from refined sugar?

If you hadn’t already guessed from the title of this post, it’s our Family Friendly Chocolate Rum Balls!

This four step recipe is just the sort of thing eager little hands can help out with, and their size makes them the perfect treat.

These delights are made using our new creation, COCO², our all natural choc-coco spread full of the flavour and goodness of coconut and cocoa. Sweetened with our Rice Malt Syrup, it’s free of refined sugars and artificial additives, so a good choice when you’re looking for a treat but don’t want all the nasties.

To keep them family friendly, these “rum” balls are made without any actual rum, but if you are making these for adults, a splash of your favourite liquor goes very nicely 😉
