Raw Rumballs

Raw Rum Balls

It took me a few tries to get this ‘Rum Balls’ formula right, but I think I’ve finally perfected it. As far as I’m concerned, it would be completely uncivilized to participate in a raw food challenge without planning and preparing some strategic placed culinary treats. An after lunch sweet really hits the spot these days, even more so than when eating my regular diet. Having these on hand really rounds out a meal and pleases the palate. Though there is actually no rum in this recipe, I call them ‘Rum Balls’ anyway, as they do have a slight ‘rummish’ flavour to them, though I have absolutely no idea why.
