Coconut Rum Balls – Kokosové kuličky

Kokosove kulicky are one of the Czechs favorite Christmas cookies.  Filled with rum flavor and quick to make, I can understand why these coconut rum balls are so popular. This is a fast and easy no cook sweet that will be a hit with the whole family.


Coconut Rum Balls – Kokosové kuličky


  • 1 Tin of sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup (230 gr.) Finely ground vanilla wafers
  • ½ cup (115 gr.) Finely ground walnuts, pecans or hazelnuts
  • ½ cup (115 gr.) Softened butter
  • 2 tablespoons rum or 1 teaspoon rum flavoring
  • 1/2 cup (115 gr.) Grated coconut


In a large bowl mix together sweetened condensed milk, ground vanilla wafers, ground walnuts, softened butter and rum. Work the dough with your hands until all is well incorporated. Wrap in plastic and leave in the refrigerator for about an hour to harden. When cooled, roll the dough into logs about ½ inch in diameter. Cut into ½ inch pieces and roll in your hands to form balls. Roll the balls into grated coconut. Leave for one day so flavors can blend before eating.

Yield: Makes about 90 balls.
