Christmas Rum Balls in the Thermomix

Published , Last Updated

Thank you to everyone who watched Anais and I make Christmas Rum balls in the Thermomix today. We absolutely loved sharing some “live” time with you and reading the comments. Anais really enjoys cooking and the Thermomix makes it so safe to give kids an opportunity to cook. If you’re making the rum balls and would like to see the Christmas Cooking Video  just follow the link. If you’re not a member of the ThermoKitchen Facebook group page you may need to join first.

This is a really simple treat to make so it’s a good one to save for the kids to make when they’re on school holidays. We usually make one batch with rum and one without.  Just make sure you roll the “rum balls” in coconut and the other in the chocolate sprinkles so there isn’t any confusion. We don’t want children eating any boozy ones by mistake.

If you’re not a fan of Rum you can swap the alcohol for Baileys or Kaluah. This is a very forgiving recipe so choose whatever booze you prefer.

Once the Rum Balls are made they need to be refrigerated so they become nice and firm. If you find the balls are too soft to roll properly just refrigerate them for 30 minutes and then roll them and coat them in sprinkles. Sometimes in our hot summer weather, the chocolate gets a little too melty and won’t form a nice shape.

When the Rum Balls a cold they will be firm enough to package as gifts. Place the Rum Balls in a clear cellophane bag tied with a red bow, ready for Christmas giving. You can make this recipe well in advance of Christmas and keep the balls covered in the fridge. When you’re ready for gift giving package them up.

    I just want to double check. Do you add the complete cake or just 1/4 of the 465gm cake?

    1. Hi Kim, Thank you for your question. You add the whole cake to the rum ball mixture. I suggested quartering the cake so that it will mix more evenly in the Thermomix. I have changed the wording of the recipe. I hope it’s a little more clear now. Thanks for sending the message 🙂 I hope you enjoy the recipe :).
