Rum Balls

(2 Votes)
4 dozen

Although rum has strong roots in the Caribbean, it has long been a part of Southern drinks, as well as desserts. Rum balls are a perfect, tasty example of why!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (11-ounce) package chocolate wafer cookies, crushed
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup light or dark rum
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar, divided
What To Do:
  1. In a large bowl, combine crushed cookies and pecans; mix well. Stir in the corn syrup and rum until thoroughly combined.
  2. Place confectioners' sugar in a shallow dish. Roll cookie mixture into 1-1/2-inch balls. Roll in confectioners' sugar until completely coated.
  3. Serve, or store in an airtight container at room temperature until ready to serve.

These tend to absorb most of the confectioners' sugar after coating, so be sure to coat them very heavily; you might even want to roll them in additional sugar just before serving.

What would be chocolate wafer cookies? Not sure and don't want to buy the wrong thing.

You should be able to find them in the cookie isle, Vootermon makes good ones but there are a couple other one available.

I do this receipe every holiday season. It's kinda family tradition. We use vanilla wafer and use coco

well, mikki60, just WHOMS recipe box do you want them to go to???


You need to have wondows save your log in, my pc asked if i want it to. I also got flustered having to do this before i noticed the message pop up at the bottom of my screen.

I used to make these with my mom for Christmas every year. They were a traditional favorite and we always looked forward to them. Even the kids were allowed to have one or two. Yum, Yum.
