This is a yummy recipe for rum balls, and it costs a lot less to make than original recipes. I had 4 people try the little balls, and they thought they were great!

Easy... SO easy! And delicious! I'll be making again for my friends! Everyone who tried gave it 10 stars! I was thinking it would also be really cool to layer the ingridents in a canning jar and attaching a bottle or two of rum with a ribbon. :)
