Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super easy and super yummy! Super easy and super yummy! I made them as directed and then I made a couple more batches with different extract/flavoring (peppermint extract rolled in crushed candy canes and almond extract rolled in chopped almonds. Kids and adults both love them and they are so easy. I know what all my neighbors are getting for Christmas!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was a great, simple recipe! This was a great, simple recipe! I used real rum instead and even have made it with a little Kahlua instead. I'm not a fan of nuts,but I love extra dark chocolate. So once I subbed the nuts with cocoa powder and always dark chocolate instead of semi-sweet; that gave it an extra kick!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A little variation...use white chocolate and sweetened condensed milk. A little variation...use white chocolate and sweetened condensed milk. When you roll them into balls, put a chocolate chip in the center then use red decorative icing to make it look like bloodshot eyeballs. Omit the pecans and rum extract, of course.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Yuck! Yuck! I thought these tasted terrible! The rum extract taste was so strong. All but one member of my family agreed. I was embarrassed to even serve them, so they went in the garbage.
