These are amazing! I love rum balls, but I have never made them, so I had no idea what goes into them. I had to add a little more cookie crumbs to make it a good consistency, and I rolled them in powdered sugar instead of walnuts (personal preference), and they were amazing! I had a hard time keeping my paws off them, since I had made them for gifts! I need to make another batch soon.

I love these. I didn't have any rum so I used Baileys Irish Cream. They turned out great. Thanks for posting Sandaidh.

I have made a vegan/gluten free (using vegan/gluten free chocolate cookies) version of this recipe many times and it is a big hit. I do find however that I need to use more than one cup of cookie crumbs to make the mixture solid enough to form into balls.

This was my first try at Rum Balls, and it was wonderful! I used a lot more rum ( wink wink), and rolled them in granulated sugar. I will be making these again! Thanks!

let me just say this, THANK YOU!! This recipe can be used in so many different ways, I love it. I did get a little tipsy making them though, sampleing the alchol for quality. i made over 400 of these little balls, and what a hit. I used Bailey's in place of rum in one batch, mint schnapps in another, and my favorite yet, coconut rum on the last. The Coconut rum ones i rolled in flaked coconut instead of the nuts and they were awesome. They were the hit at our company christmas party. Thanks again for the recipe.

I made these ahead for a party I am going to and it is so hard to keep my myself away. These are so good. Thanks for a great recipe. I will be making these again soon.

These are really good. The rum flavor is not overpowering. They go together quick and easy. I have a neighbor that just loves Rum Balls and has been looking for "the perfect recipe". I will forward this on to her. Thank you for the recipe!

I only have one thing to say about this recipe. Ok..two. Totaly Awesome. I have had the pleasure to enjoy this recipe for several years now as Sandaidh sent it to me from California a few years ago and I've made it quite a few times. The hard part is is to keep people from gobbleing them up. My son was always taking them "all" and taking them to them to work to share. LOL! Thank you for posting this and thank you for the batch last week. :-)

I just made these. I live in Tasmania and they dont have vanilla wafers so I used coffee milk bisquits and butter shortbread cookies. I didnt have cocoa powder so i omitted it in the first batch and put it in the second. Wow both are great.. and Easy.. but make alot cause ya paws are gonna get into it..and so is the partner.
