Josiah's Magic Chocolate Coconut Rum Balls instructions
- Preheat the oven to 325.
- In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar, butter and water. Cook over medium heat until boiling..
- Remove from heat and stir in chocolate chips until melted and smooth..
- Mix in the eggs and vanilla..
- Stir flour, baking soda, salt, ABV, and 1 cup coconut flakes (you'll be using the rest later) into the chocolate mixture..
- Spread evenly into 2 medium sized greased pans (or just cook one batch at a time, if you don't have 2)..
- Bake for 25 to 35 minutes (don't worry about slightly overcooking, just don't under-cook)..
- Remove from pan in medium sized chunks and let cool..
- Leave out overnight, and uncovered. Let them get stale..
- In the morning break everything into small pieces into a large bowl..
- Pour in the Rum, and mix until you've got a thick, gooey batter..
- Scoop into teaspoon sized balls, and place onto lined plate, or cookie sheet. Balls will be hard to form, don't worry about it. Place the plate/sheet into the fridge for about 15-20min. This will make them firm up, for the final formation..
- After removing from the fridge pour a bit of coconut flakes (you should still have 1 cup left for this) into your hand, and roll the ball around in it, forming it as you go..
- Once formed and covered in the coconut flakes, drop the balls into a bowl of powdered sugar, and give them a good roll..
- Set the rum balls onto a plate, and place it into the fridge for about 15-20 minutes..
- Remove from fridge and serve! Feel free to leave them out, as they won't melt at room temperature..
