Spiced Rum Balls

Ingredients

  • 4 cups pitted dates, finely chopped or processed in food processor
  • 4 tablespoons spiced rum of your choice
  • 4 cups walnuts, finely chopped or processed in food processor
  • 1/2 cup cashews, finely chopped or processed in food processor
  • 1 cup pumpkin seeds – finely chopped or processed in food processor
  • 2 1/2 cup shredded coconut, finely chopped or processed in food processor
  • 1/2 cup chocolate, melted

Instructions

  • Chop up the dates in a Food Processor if you have one. You may need to do them in a couple of batches because they are so sticky but you will get there.
  • Process all of the nuts and coconut. They can all go together. The pieces need to be small so the balls roll up nicely.
  • Now, put the ground up dates, nuts, and coconut in a very large bowl.
  • Melt the chocolate and drizzle half of it over the mixtures. Stir it in. Add the rest of the chocolate and mix it all in too. I use my fingers and make sure it is all blended well.
  • Add the spiced rum.
  • Mix all together again.
  • Now to start rolling balls.
  • If it is too sticky for you – you can lightly dampen your hands every once in a while. Not wet. I don’t find the stickiness a problem.
