Start by grinding some almonds and cashews in a food processor until they become a fine powder. Add pitted dates and rum extract, then process until everything is well blended.
Next, add some cacao powder or cocoa powder and pulse again until everything is combined. The mixture should be slightly crumbly yet still able to bind together if you press it with your fingers. If the mixture doesn’t keep together, try adding a few drops of water at a time until it does.
Spread cacao/cocoa powder and unsweetened shredded coconut on separate plates for coating the rum balls. Create each rum ball by using a tablespoon to scoop the mixture, then roll them into a smooth ball with your hands. Finally, roll each rum ball in either cocoa or coconut to give them an authentic look and taste. Refrigerate for a couple of hours, then serve your freshly-made Chocolate Coconut Rum Balls to all your friends and family—enjoy!
