40+ Festive Vegan New Year's Eve Recipes

Yield: 14 balls
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes

Make these fun and festive vegan New Year’s Eve recipes this year to inspire your guests and help them fall in love with plant-based treats. Our crowd-pleasing recipes will make for the best party ever! The following vegan rum balls recipe is so delicious and takes only around 15 minutes to make, perfect for making ahead of time or bringing to a gathering.


Vegan Rum Balls

  • 1 cup dates, pitted (120 g)
  • 1 cup almonds (100 g)
  • 2 tablespoons coconut, desiccated
  • 1-2 tablespoons rum extract
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons almond butter
  • 2 oz dark chocolate, melted (55 g)
  • Pinch of salt


    1. Start by melting the chocolate in the microwave or on the stove. If you don't have a good food processor, soak your dried dates for a couple of minutes in hot water, then drain them well.
    2. Place the almonds in a food processor and pulse until they turn into a fine meal. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend until a large ball forms.
    3. You might need to add a splash of water in order to achieve the right consistency while blending.
    4. Using your wet hands, divide the mixture into equally sized pieces and roll each of them until you've created a little ball.
    5. Place all of your rum balls next to each other on a plate. You can roll them in some desiccated coconut or extra cocoa powder if you like.
    6. Transfer them into the fridge for 20-30 minutes before serving so they can firm up. The homemade rum balls can be stored in a sealed container in the fridge for 4-5 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.


    • You can add 1 tablespoon of brewed espresso or a spritz of dark rum to your balls if you like!
    • Instead of almonds, you can use walnuts, pecans or cashews. Almond butter can be swapped for cashew, coconut or sunflower seed butter.
    • If you want the rum balls to be sweeter, add more maple syrup as well as more coconut or almonds.
