semisweet chocolate chips
light corn syrup
2 1/2 cups
vanilla wafer crumbs
I used grahan crumbs instead of vanilla wafer crumbs and the turned out excellent.
ugh, our rum balls came out terrible!! used graham cracker crumbs (what i had on hand) as recommended by a reviewer & bacardi's amber rum. if there's a next time, i'll stick to the recipe! thanks anyway, amanda.
These little babies are delicious!! Being a no-bake cookie and rolling them in granulated sugar makes things a lot less messy, too, than rum balls I've made in the past rolling those in powdered sugar. Little trick I learned....go to the liquor store and buy the little miniature bottle of Bacardi dark rum. It's just enough for the recipe and you don't have to spend a fortune on a whole bottle of rum (unless you have other uses for it...LOL)! Recommend these 100% and these will be on my "regulars" list of Christmas cookies. :-D
I also use confectioner's sugar instead of white sugar... another substitution that I really like is Amaretto instead of rum. A low rating for "kid friendly" because of the alcohol, but hey, adults need a treat too!
This cookie was a big hit at Christmas. I used Captain Morgan's spiced rum, and had to print out copies of the recipe for about 5 people! Very yummy.
I searched high and low for the perfect Rum Ball recipe, and this is it! I use Capt. Morgan's Spiced Rum......and instead of rolling them in sugar, I use coconut (which you can color for holidays) or finely chopped walnuts. They make great gifts too....with that personal touch!
YUMMY, I have been looking for a recipie with real chocolate chips instead of cocoa powder (Thats the way my aunt made them) I also use ginger snaps instead of vanilla wafers. THE BEST!!
This is fantastic and easy to make. I used Malibu Rum coconut flavor and it added that special flavor. I then made 3 batches, 1 rolled in coconut flakes, another rolled in regular sugar, and the last in powdered sugar. All came out very very yummy. A keeper for sure.
