Wow! Wow! Wow! I never made rum balls before and these were fantastic and so very simple to make. I used coconut rum because that was the only rum I had. I halved the recipe because I didn't need too many and I still got 20 rum balls. I used a small cookie scoop. Thank you for sharing!
What a great recipe! I a hard time finding 12 ounce boxes of vanilla wafers all they have now are 11 ounce boxes. It didn't seem to make all that much difference in the final product though,look and taste just wonderful ! Thanks !!!!!
