Servings 16


  • Bowl
  • saucepan
  • Sweet cases


  • 100 grams plain chocolate or vegan chocolate
  • 1-2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 40 grams butter or plant based spread
  • 50 grams icing sugar
  • 50 grams ground almonds
  • rum or rum essence
  • 2-4 tablespoons plain chocolate strands or vegan chocolate


  • Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a saucepan of water on the cooker. Or melt it in the microwave but take care not to overcook it or it will go 'grainy'.
  • Stir in the butter or plant based spread and the orange juice. Wait until the fat has melted into the chocolate.
  • Sieve the icing sugar and stir into the chocolate.
  • Stir in the almonds.
  • Add rum or rum essence to taste.
  • Leave in the fridge until firm enough to handle.
  • Roll into 16 balls, and cover with chocolate strands or icing sugar.
  • Place the balls into sweet cases.


To coat the balls in chocolate strands, tip 2 tablespoons of the strands into a shallow bowl and roll the balls about until they are covered.
Use the same method to coat in icing sugar.
