When the Recipe Redux theme this month was showing how we like to using liquors in our recipes..I knew right away the alcohol I was using. My favorite that was also used in my ย and my ..Coconut Rum <3 ๐Ÿ™‚

Rum balls use to be a favorite of mine when growing up. Even though I didn’t necessarily like the alcohol rum itself in the least bit, for some reason I LOVED any baked goods with it like that pineapple rum upside down cake or those little chocolate filled rum balls.

Too bad those weren’t healthy whatsoever. Which is why I came up with a healthy alternative, that still has the lovely rum taste.

Raw, gluten free, dairy free, and oh so delicious, this one is surely a winner.



So very simple and quick to make, and if you’re anything like me, you’ll be popping them in your mouth just as quickly!

I don’t know about you, but I surely have those chocolate cravings every single day..guess what I’ve been turning to?

Yep, you got it! These babies <3

They looked so tempting even my pups wanted some during the photoshoot..sorry Gracie, love ya but had to say no!

Questions for YOU

Are you a fan of liquor in desserts?

What is your favorite, unique way to enjoy liquor? (my friend use to mix Bailey’s in her pudding..sounds delicious to me!)

Until next time,
