This recipe was O.K. I would like a rum ball recipe that is more creamy and rummy tasting. Maybe that would be called a truffle? My husband expected a little sweeter tasting bite. The balls I tried to roll in almonds looked nothing like the picture! They would not stick to the balls in any uniform fashion! Powdered sugar worked the best.
They were a huge success at my place of employment and I used rum that my daughter brought from St. Maarten. They were easy to make and I will make them over and over.
tasted like lard the combination of butter and the cocoa just did not mix well. I was hoping for rich...and coatings of coconut or anythign else would not stick to outside of ball. No liquor taste at all...what a disappointment!
So very good and yet so easy. I received many compliments and many requests for this recipe.
I'm sorry, but this recipe was NOT what I was looking for. I have to agree with the other cook who said the taste was so-so. I guess I was expecting this great chocolately, coconut, crunchy, something. Not the case though. I even read the reviews before I made them! Needless to say, I was definitely disappointed in these DUD rum balls.
I Love this recipe!! I used Bailey's Irish Cream instead of the coffee and Rum. Delicious!!!
I thought that these would make a great addition to my cookie exchange this year. Boy, was I wrong. They were easy to make but the nuts and coconut wouldn't stick to the outside of the balls - no matter what I did. I even tried kneading the nuts into the ball and they didn't want to stick. The taste was only so so anyway. I won't be making these again.
Love this recipe, I leave out the coffee and use Kahlua instead of the rum. This recipe has been a big hit for the past 16 years. It is what I'm asked to bring for the holiday party at work every year.
Huge hit!!! People of all ages loved this in their holiday gift baskets.
Recipe was great, I dont' care for the nuts, so I substituted oatmeal. I also increased the coffee, since I like coffee flavor. I would recommend chilling the mixture before rolling it makes it easier to work with. These taste great and were easy!
