GORGEOUS, GORGEOUS, GORGEOUS!!! These are a big hit! The balls themselves are nice, but dipping them in chocolate takes them to a whole new level of DELISH. I did some of them with the powdered sugar, some with white chocolate, some with milk chocolate and some are double-dipped... heh-heh-heh. :) I used coconut rum which is excellent and doubled it (1/2c.), because they were otherwise looking too dry. Lastly, I used a mixture of nuts - almonds, pecans & walnuts. I think this recipe just made the cut for an annual holiday fave!



I made these several days ago for all my neighbor's Christmas treat plates.....they are the best rum balls I've had and the neighbors want more!!! Very addictive and hard to resist.



This recipe was easy and delicious. I agree that they only improve with age. I could not make enough of them to satisfy the crowd at work. Definitely a hit!
