  • 1/2 cup marzipan (make sure it's vegan)
  • 3 teaspoons cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon rum*
  • 2 teaspoons shredded coconut , unsweetened


  • Mix the marzipan, cocoa powder, and rum and knead it until the whole marzipan is brown.
  • Form little balls (about 15 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 use Black Spiced Rum like 'The Kraken'.
Use alcohol-free vanilla extract or a splash of orange juice for a non-alcoholic version.
