the perfect frugal treat rum balls
The perfect Christmas treat.

1 packet crushed biscuits (scotch finger, milk arrowroot, or if your feeling adventurous chocolate ripple or ginger nut!)
1 tin condensed milk
2 tablespoons cocoa
1/2 cup coconut + extra to roll
1 cup mixed fruit
2 tablespoons of rum


Crush the biscuits in either a food processor or by hand – place in large zip lock bag and bash with a rolling pin.
Mix in all other ingredients.
Roll into balls and roll in coconut.
Store in fridge or freezer for as long as they last! Haha in the freezer at least 3 months, but no matter how good you hide them, they will be found and will be eaten!

Makes about 24

Thanks for checking these out, I really do hope you enjoy these as much as my family does!
