I'm halfway through making these...have it all mixed together and am chilling it before I roll them. I tasted a little bit, and though I will definitely let them mellow, I can tell how delicious they will be. I'm making them for Christmas/my father's birthday, and I know he'll be thrilled.
Great recipe! A little too strong for me, but I'll just adjust the alcohol next time. I even used splenda rather than icing sugar and they came out good.
Wow, wow, wow! These are awesome! I noticed in the reviews that some thought there was too much rum, so I decreased the rum to 1/3 cup, topped the measuring cup up to 1/2 with the corn syrup and added the extra 2 tbsps. corn syrup too. They were just perfect for us. I chilled the batter before forming; I also used a wet tablespoon measure to form the balls and had no problems. Everyone loved these rum balls!
These were simple and quick to make and taste great!
Mmmm! These are very tasty...and easy, too! I chilled mine as the other reviewers had suggested, and it worked wonderfully. I'll definitely be making up a batch for Christmas.
GREAT! I used the cocoa liquer instead, had to make 3 batches for everyone. Easy, Easy. Thanks for posting this.
Loved these great adults treats. I made 2 batches.
1) with Pecan Rum
2) Pennslyvania Dutch Egg Nog..
New editions to my Sweet Treat gift trays.
I accidentally added ALL the sugar in the mix. No worries. Alcohol amount is fine - you need to let these mellow for a week. What's the point if you reduce the alcohol - they should have a little kick. I chilled before rolling into the minny balls.
I have been making this same recipe for 25 years! I have it written on a little note from my grandmothers desk. I always make at least a double batch and give them to family and friends.
I am a cake vendor at Farmers markets. I made these to sell as christmas gifts to my customers. I opened one can and gave then as samples, within a half an hour I was completely sold out. The word got out and everyone went crazy. These are magnifico...
