    susie.freckle.face's Note:

    Do you like the taste of the candy bar almond joy? Well then you'll enjoy these NO-BAKE rum balls. Approximately one cup and a half of Myers Coconut Rum breaks down to 6 rum balls being 1 shot of booze. yields about 5 - 6 dozen rum balls (I don't have an accurate count b/c I... and a roommate (yea right) snacked while I was making them - whoopsiedaisy MY BAAAD). You can grind fine the vanilla wafers or stomp on with a rolling pin fine to medium coarse the way I like it. The 1 1/4 cup of Myers coconut rum is more like a cup and a half to taste.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 60



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (12 ounce) bag melted semi-sweet chocolate chips, by trader joe's
    • 1 (12 ounce) box vanilla wafer cookies, ground fine
    • 1 1/4 cups of myers coconut rum
    • 3/4 cup turbinado sugar or 3/4 cup other not bleached sugar
    • 3/4 cup caro corn syrup, at room temperature

    toppings to taste


    1. 1
      in a large non metal mixing bowl with a wooden spoon:
    2. 2
      mix the smashed nilla wafers with the turbinado sugar and the rum.
    3. 3
      incorporate the caro light corn syrup.
    4. 4
      incorporate the melted semisweet chocolate chips.
    5. 5
      let the mixture cool to a workable consistency
    6. 6
      line a jelly roll tray with parchment, put your surgical gloves on to start rolling the rum balls about 1 tsp in size - or slightly smaller than a doughnut hole.
    7. 7
      As you roll the rum balls up (slightly smaller than a doughnut hole)~~
    8. 8
      Roll them in a tray of coconut flakes and chopped almonds (I love the trader joe’s sesame honey almonds), or you can embed a whole almond on the rum ball and roll in powdered sugar and coconut flakes. Either way is quite tasty.
    9. 9
      Place rum balls on the parchment and let set up for a little while - you can refrigerate them.
