Gluten-free Christmas: Rum Balls

1 cup sultanas
40ml  rum
250g packet plain gluten-free biscuits (I used Leda's arrowroot biscuits, which are also lactose-free)
1 cup desiccated coconut
half cup cocoa powder
half cup caster sugar
2 tablespoons apricot jam
extra coconut for rolling




  1. Put sultanas and half the rum in a sealed container, shake, refrigerate for at least a week, shaking from time to time, so until all the rum is absorbed.
  2. Crush the biscuits (either in a food processor, or place in a plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin.) 
  3. Place crushed, biscuits, 1 cup coconut, cocoa, and sugar in a bowl, with soaked sultanas, the rest of the rum, and the jam.
  4. Mix the ingredients together, then take spoonfuls of the mixture and form into balls.  Roll each ball in extra coconut and refrigerate.
Recipe makes about 30.
Recipe is gluten-free, (lactose free, vegan friendly depend on the type of biscuits used). 
These rum balls are very rich.
