Vegan & Gluten-free No-Bake Marzipan Rum Balls – perfect for the holidays! They are super easy to make and don’t require an oven. Can be made in 10 minutes.
Together with my favorite blogger friends, we decided it would be fun to make a Holiday Cookie Party – completely vegan & gluten-free. For this reason everyone is sharing one of their cookie recipes. I think all turned out great and drool-worthy. You’ll find a list of all the delicious vegan & gluten-free cookies below my recipe! The Holiday Cookie Party was organized by Rebecca (Strength & Sunshine) and Natalie (Feasting on Fruit), thank you so much ladies! :)
Got a sec? Because I have probably the easiest cookie recipe here for you! These No-Bake Marzipan Rum Balls can be made in a couple of minutes. They are the perfect addition to any festive cookie platter. You don’t want to miss these! They are vegan & gluten-free and could be easily made into a non-alcoholic version (see recipe notes for alternatives).
- Mix the marzipan, cocoa powder and rum and knead it until the whole marzipan is brown.
Form little balls (about 20 pieces).
- Place the shredded coconut in a small bowl and add a few marzipan balls. Roll them around until coated evenly and repeat for the rest.
- Store in an air-tight box or serve immediately.
*Here's a list of vegan-friendly rums. I like to used Black Spiced Rum like 'The Kraken'.
Use alcohol-free vanilla extract or a splash of orange juice for a non-alcoholic version.
