    mixer with the paddle attachment until well crumbled.
  2. Add the cocoa powder and the apricot jam.
  3. Add the dark syrup and Volbeat Rum III. Mix, taste the dough
    and eventually add more Volbeat Rum III for a stronger taste.

    at a time weigh and adjust it to 40 grams per portion.
    Form balls with your hands.
  5. Chill the rum cake balls for a couple of hours in the refrigerator.
  6. Then melt the chocolate and dip each rum cake ball in the

    for example chocolate sprinkles. Let the chocolate set.
