Black and White Coffee Rum Coconut Bites
Yaaaaaay!! Coffee Rum Coconut Bites on the loose!! Do you want me to say that again? And maybe out loud? COFFEE RUM COCONUT BITES!
Technically this recipe come from a different shape than balls or bites let’s say. Adam made one of those recipes last Christmas. And from the way he was eating them, I have to say that he loves them so much! Like a total crush on Coffee Rum Coconut Bites. But this time I was feeling like making a ball shape. I know. I’m all about those little sweet balls lately. Can’t even say why. Like do you remember those Cinnamon Avocado Balls? Which I made about 2 weeks ago. And now here I am again with Coffee Rum Coconut Bites again. Which are also in a Ball shape.
But I’ve also changed the recipe a bit from Adam’s. ,,More Rum?” Yep. How did you know?? But only a little more splash of it. Don’t worry. I’m not trying to get you drunk 😉
So what and when are these Coffee Rum Coconut Bites good for? Oh, I gotta tell you!
- Christmas Eve (but it’s too late now. Next year)
- New Year’s Eve (Oh Yeah, definitely!)
- Birthday Party
- Secret Santa Gift (in a fancy box)
- Parties (of any kind to be honest)
- Great relief from cravings for sweets
And IT IS Delicious! Well I mean, the taste of Rum? Mm …
Coffee Rum Coconut BitesPrint Recipe
- White Layer
- 100g Butter (room temperature)
- 100g Sugar Powder
- 100g Coconut (grated)
- 1 tsp Vanilla extract
- Dark Layer
- 400g Biscuits
- 200g Walnuts
- 100g Cocoa
- 240g Sugar powder
- 6 Tbsp Rum
- 2/3 cup Coffee
- More Coconut or Nuts for rolling
Add all ingredients for the white layer to the bowl and mix it all together until everything is well combined. Form the mixture into small balls with your hands. Place them on a baking tray and put them into a fridge for about 1 to 2 hours.
Because the dark layer is very good for farming right after it’s made you can start to prepare it right before you pull the white balls out from the fridge. Mix the biscuits and walnuts in a food processor. Make a 2/3 cup of coffee with warm water and add it to the biscuits with all the remaining ingredients and mix everything well until combined.
Form the mixture into bigger balls then the white ones and press the ball in your hands until you’ll get a flat round doughnut. Place a white ball in a middle and gently cover the white ball with the dark layer and roll the whole ball in your hands. Continue with the rest until you use up all the mixture.
Roll the bolls in a grated coconut or walnuts.
1. Keep the balls in a fridge where they can last even more than a week or two. 2. You can mix the mixtures with your hands or a spoon, but I’ve mixed mine in a food processor. Was much easier 🙂 3. A number of balls depending on how big you would make them. I made mine quite a big. If you want your balls small you have to make the first white balls very small. Otherwise, with the extra dark layer, you would have very big ones. With the size of mine, I made 17 balls. They were pretty big. I ate them in a 2 bites, maybe even 3. But somebody (like Adam with a big mouth) could make it on one 😉
