These rum delicacies are an adult dessert! They are surprisingly simple—though messy—to make and perfect for prepare-ahead entertaining. To give as a gift, pack each in paper candy cups, then place in a pretty tin.


  • 3 tablespoons butter

  • 8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate

  • 3 teaspoons dark rum

  • 2 teaspoons heavy cream

  • 1 egg yolk

  • 1/2 cup confectioner's sugar

  • 1 teaspoon Frontier Co-op Almond Extract

  • 1 1/2 cups shredded, sweetened coconut, divided


    1. In a small, heavy saucepan (or double boiler), melt butter and chocolate together until smooth. Remove from heat.

    2. Add rum, cream, egg yolk, sugar, almond extract, and 1/2 cup of the coconut. Whisk until well blended. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.

    3. Roll into one-inch balls, then roll the balls in the remaining 1 cup coconut. Set on waxed paper to harden. Store, covered, in the refrigerator for up to 2 days, or in the freezer for up to one month.
