Extremely good! Goowey, chocolatey than u taste a little alcohol,I used around a1/2 cup.
Love this recipe, easy & delicious! Been using this recipe for years! When done, I roll them in chopped walnuts & put each one in a paper candy cup!
My family has been making these for over 60 years -- yes, 60 years. My grandmother, mother, and now my sister. One year we will make rum balls, the next year brandy balls, whiskey balls are great with honey whiskey. We always made them the weekend after Thanksgiving, because aging in the frig for about six weeks mellows the harshness of the liquor. Great recipe. Hope it is passed down in your family like it has been in mine. Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Have a great season.
Btw, I used the 11-oz box of Vanilla Wafers and it was fine.
I made these for the second time this year. I drop the balls in confectioners sugar with a scoop then roll them into balls and into more sugar. They aren't so sticky with the sugar on them before you roll. I have no problems making them.
I would like to suggest looking up weights of ingredients..example 1 cup of confection sugar is 4-1/2 .oz......1 cup walnuts is 3.6 .oz.....1 cup cocoa is 3.5 ..oz Get the idea... this might be the problem for the differences. Also, if you want more flavor...use rum extract..the volume of liquid should not be a problem.. I have not made these rum balls, but have a very old one in my recipe collections. Hope I have helped....
I make these every year & I get requests for them all the time! They’re better the longer they sit... better rum flavor!
My Mom used 1 cup rum and blew the oven door open.
Mine is a gummy mess i followed exactly
Help! I'm making these now but they're impossible to roll into balls. Very loose. I followed the directions to the T. Any suggestions to thicken up the consistency? Thanks!!!!
