"These are quick to make (no bake) and absolutely delcious. I had a friend over when I was making these and they seemed to be disappearing as quickly as I could roll new ones. Next time I might increase the ratio of rum to corn syrup, but they are fantastic as is. I plan to let them dry out for a couple of days before eating."

I made these twice. The second batch I did away with rolling balls in sugar and just rolled them in desiccated coconut instead. I found the rolled in sugar too sandy in texture. I also added flaked chocolate to give extra sweetness instead.

I did a 2/3 - 1/3 split of rum and bourbon and poured both on the heavy side. After 1 day in the fridge, they were a huge hit. I need to make more!

I think next time I will mix everything in the food processor to get the mixture very fine.

Great picture. Increasing the rum is usually a good idea. Be sure to pre-sample it to verify it's quality. =;)

I think I forgot to give these a rating - definitely great! A lot of traditional rum ball recipes use powdered sugar on the outside, and you could always do that with these, but the granulated sugar was good too.
