Kid-Friendly Rum Balls (chocolate & coconut balls)

This is the easiest Kid-Friendly Rum Balls – simply combine crushed biscuits, cocoa, coconut and condensed milk to make these delicious little treats!

If there’s one classic recipe that EVERYONE needs to know how to make… it’s these super-easy and kid-friendly rum balls. Obviously this ‘kid-friendly’ recipe contains no alcohol, but if you’re making an adults only version, add in a tablespoon of yum (for a nighty little treat).

Kid-Friendly Rum Balls

This is a perfect recipe for getting kids into the kitchen. They will love crushing the biscuits and rolling the mixture into balls. I remember making these rum balls when I was little and I would crush the biscuits with our big marble rolling pin. I actually still have that rolling pin (I pinched it off Mum when I moved out of home!).

My daughter (5 yrs) loved helping me make these. We plan to make them again when we have a tea party with her friends. They are so easy and delicious. Thank you.
