Rated 4 out of 5 by from These are delicious! These are delicious!! They were very easy to make and I didn't have any problem getting the almonds, sprinkles, or coconut to stick. Everyone loved them! These are getting added to the Christmas cookie line up. I didn't have a food processor to crush the cookies so I just put them in a zip lock and used a rolling pin and the mixture came out very smooth. All my coworkers enjoyed them. I will make them again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made these rum balls twice to use in Christmas gift baskets. I made these rum balls twice to use in Christmas gift baskets. Coating them with coconut and chocolate jimmies didn't work well and they were light on rum flavor. They're much better with double the corn syrup and rum and using half the butter. I also coated them in Baker's semi-sweet chocolate. By doubling the rum no one noticed they weren't magazine perfect!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I thought that these would make a great addition to my cookie exchange this year. 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This recipe was O.K. 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I'm sorry, but this recipe was NOT what I was looking for. 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from way too greasy, I put them in a tin and the surface of the counter was greasy. way too greasy, I put them in a tin and the surface of the counter was greasy. So, I put a whole section of newspaper underneath them and it became saturated. What a mess. Also, they were so greasy they kind of flattened out. In addition, even after sitting for a month the flavor didn't become enhanced as is usually the case w/rum balls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I served this recipe to a group of ladies and they thought it was great. I served this recipe to a group of ladies and they thought it was great. Each one of them wanted to know where I purchased them. They were shocked when they found out that I made them. The ladies wanted the recipe then. I had to tell them about your web page, so they could sign up. The Decadent Rum Balls were the talk of the party.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made this for co-workers as Christmas gifts. I made this for co-workers as Christmas gifts. They loved them! I changed some things according to my likes. For example, instead of coffee granules, I used ovaltine. I don't like coconut and so I rolled them in grape nuts (which EVERYONE thought was regular nuts.) The result was a very tasty and very elegant looking treat!!
