Dark Chocolate Rum Balls

We’ve learned to appreciate rum while on holiday in Havana and that’s exactly the reason why I was looking for a way to add a little rum to our low carb pick-me-up afternoon snack. If you love dark chocolate and rum, you’ll LOVE these no-bake dark chocolate rum balls.

Here’s what I use to make about 20 chocolate rum balls:

  • 100g ground almonds
  • 50g dark chocolate
  • 40g butter
  • 20g low carb sweetener
  • 10g coconut oil
  • 5g cocoa powder
  • 2-3 tbsp rum
  • 20g ground almonds or shredded coconut for coating

Did I mention that these chocolate rum balls are incredibly easy to make? You only have to follow 4 simple steps:

  1. Melt butter, coconut oil and chocolate in a bain marie
  2. Add sweetener, cocoa powder and rum to mixture and stir well
  3. Finally, add the ground almonds and chill mixture for about 20mins
  4. Roll the mixture into balls and coat them with either ground almonds or shredded coconut

I love having low carb snacks handy in the fridge as I have a sweet tooth and these definitely satisfy cravings for sweets. Just pair them with a cup of coffee and you’ll have energy to tackle the rest of your day.

    Thank you, D! I usually try to prepare healthy snacks on the weekend so I don’t have to think about them during the busy week. Meal or snack prepping really helps a lot!

Havana Uhlala, rum and dark chocolate are the best combination ever. I don’t have a sweet tooth but I would definitely have that as a snack.
