    Default Non-chocolate rum balls

    Anyone have any recipes for rum balls that don't contain chocolate/cocoa?
    FIL is allergic to chocolate, poor guy, and I was wanting to make some for Christmas treats that he would be able to eat without getting ill.

    Carob balls? Nah, yuck. You could make drunk apricot balls (same as rum balls but with chopped dried apricots, 1/4 cup I think) instead of cocoa. Or just non-drunk apricot balls, Or white christmas.

    I have a recipe that has crushed pineapple instead of chocolate if you're interested.

    either apricot or lemon would be nice... I would say peppermint, but I think peppermint really needs the chocolate as a compliment to it... maybe even glace cherry would work?

    These are really yummy but make sure you drain the pineapple REALLY well.

    Ooh I like the idea of the lemon rum balls! Just found a recipe but I might make traditional rum balls but instead of cocoa I'll use lemon rind instead? Think that will work?
