These are AWESOME!!! My husband suggested an easier way to coat them with the powdered sugar: instead of rolling them in it, put the sugar in a ziploc bag and shake. They come out perfect with ...

This was the worst thing I have ever made, and this is the only one star bad review I have ever written. I was leary when I saw the vanilla wafers as an ingredient because I don't like using pro...

Like some other readers, I made this last year and did not get around to rating it, probably because I kept having to make more rumballs for everyone who went gaga for these! They were easy to ...

Just made these to add to my holiday cookie plate. They turned out GREAT! I used a little less than 1/2 a cup of Capt. Morgans spiced rum and they are tasty. They are fast and easy to make an...

Oh my goodness!! I've had rum balls before, but never quite this good. I found this recipe at the last minute and found I didn't have any rum. With the stores all closed, I used Kahlua in 1 r...

These are good - It's the first time Ive used walnuts. Here is a neat tip - I only had Coconut rum...try it, and discover a whole 'nother facet to the traditional rum balls.
