Traditional Rum Balls are an old time favourite loved by young and old.

You don’t have to just make them at Christmas time, they are good all year round!

I love these – make up to a week ahead and enjoy one or two – or a handful when I’m seriously craving it. They also make a great gift for a boss or Grandfather or anyone else hard to buy for. Just pop it in a pretty jar and it’s gonna look like you bought it at a store.

This is my Grandmothers’ recipe for Rum Balls – and I have never tasted a better version. They are seriously epic!

This recipe is made the old time way – which uses Weetbix – and it gives the Rum Balls that delicious texture that the Traditional Rum Balls should have!
