These rum balls are influenced by my love of Florida freshly squeezed orange juice!  And by fresh I mean straight from the factory.  Not shipped to your local grocery store.  There is just something about their super fresh orange juice that I have always loved and missed being able to get since moving away from Florida.  I literally make myself sick drinking orange juice when we visit.  While thinking about how I can not wait to get some so I decided to make these Orange flavored rum balls.  Enjoy these amazing flavored treats!

6 oz Nilla wafers
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 tbsp heavy cream
1/3 cup Bacardi Orange Flavored rum
1/3 cup Organic unsweetened coconut flakes
zest of 1 blood orange

In a medium mixing bowl crush Nilla wafers with a potato masher (or pulse them in a food processor before adding to bowl.) Using a fork slowly mix in rum until Nilla wafers are evenly moist.
In a small sauce pan heat chocolate over low heat until chips have melted, about 5-7 minutes. Whisk in heavy cream until smooth and then pour over Nilla mixture. By hand knead mixture in bowl until mixed well and even. Separate mixture into 14-16 evenly sized balls and then press each ball flat into a cookie shape.

In a small bowl mix together organic coconut and orange zest by hand until even.

Spread unsweetened coconut mixture around in a small bowl. Roll balls one at a time in hands until smooth and then roll each one in the mixture. Place balls as you finish them onto a nonstick cookie sheet. Once all of the balls are finished cover them with plastic wrap and freeze or chill in fridge until hardened (30-45 minutes.) Once hardened enjoy!
