The key to make this recipe without an overwhelming rum flavor, is to make them a month or two ahead. Alcohol acts as a preservative, and the longer you let them sit, the more mellow the flavor becomes. Put them in an air tight container and shake once a week. Also, if you have enough time ahead, just soak the nuts in rum or bourbon for a few months, then make the balls. As long as your utensils and containers are clean, you won't have a problem. This was always a Christmas treat in my house. Mom would start soaking the nuts on the 4th of july, and by Christmas we had the most delicious, mellow rum balls.
