“This is an easy recipe for rum balls that can be made in a short amount of time and get better with age. The strength of the rum determines if the kids get any or just the adults. I've used regular rum, coconut flavored rum and 151 proof rum in this recipe and all work great.” - by DIANEM527

"These are yummy. I didn't realize until I was making them that my 1 package of vanilla wafers was only 12 oz. not 16 oz. Given that, I used less corn syrup so they wouldn't be too sticky. I started wi..." See moreth a 1/4 cup and added more until the consisency was right. So make sure your oz. is right on the cookies and adjust corn syrup accordingly. I also couldn't make the sugar coated hands work. I used a cookie scoop to drop into a roll with sugar and rolled them that way."
