Chocolate Rum Balls I

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009
I tweaked the recipe a bit by adding a 10-12 oz. jar of maraschino cherries and 1/2 TBSP of pure almond extract. I also used sugar cookies instead of vanilla wafers and the results seemed to work just as well. You could probably use any type of cookie. ex. shortbread, windmill, almonette, coconut, butter tarts, ect. The almond extract enhances the flavor of the cherries, and the cherries make the rum balls taste more like fruitcake, which in this case, is a good thing especially around the holidays. I give this recipe 5 stars after the inclusion of the cherries and almond extract because they complement and enhance them so well. Some people might prefer vanilla or anise extract instead.
