    Scrivener1's Note:

    These are quite addicting. The flavor improves after 24 hours. You can store them for about 2 weeks. I made these for Christmas 2005, and they were very popular. I found this recipe on allrecipes.com.

      These rum balls were not only an addiction for me this holiday season - they were an obsession. So delicious! I stored them in a cool place for little over a week before eating and the rum flavour had mellowed beautifully. I would use a little less rum the next time though (maybe 100 ml rather than 120 ml?): these were just a touch too soft even after refrigeration. Could be a function of my vanilla wafers or other dry ingredients too, and anyway, it's a tiny detail in a wonderful recipe! Thank you for sharing!

      I have this recipe that I have been making for years. Absolute family favorite. My daughter still thinks they are the best Christmas cookie. I'm so glad it is here just in case I would lose my recipe. Thank you Scrivener1 for posting it.

      Oh my goodness - these balls are like heaven on a plate. Absolutley delicious! I made a moroccan themed dinner & was looking for something coconutty to have as a dessert - I made these and served them on a plate with balls of vanilla icecream (same size as coconut balls) and sprinkled chopped pistacchio nuts on top. It looked beautiful & taste amazing!
