    These rum balls are made extra special with the addition of American Heritage® Chocolate, whose spice profile works well with the flavors of dark rum

    ingredients
    • 200g Finely Grated Chocolate Drink
    • 100g unsalted butter, room temperature
    • 2 tbsp cacao powder, sifted
    • 2 tablespoons rum
    • 200g peeled hazelnuts, finely ground
    • 1 cup powdered sugar
    • Chocolate sprinkles
    Step 1

    Whip butter and add the sifted cacao powder and rum a little at a time while mixing.

    Step 2

    Melt the American Heritage® Chocolate drink mix in a double boiler; let the melted chocolate cool a bit then add to the butter with the peeled and finely ground hazelnuts (you can use a blender or coffee grinder for this).

    Step 3

    Add some sifted powdered sugar to the mixture while kneading the dough. Keep adding powdered sugar gradually until the mixture has absorbed it well and begins to firm up.

    Step 4

    Form small balls and roll them in the chocolate sprinkles.

    Step 5

    Let the balls air dry then refrigerate in an airtight container.
