I make this every Christmas and usually give them as gifts. They are an easy, no-bake treat and taste wonderful! Substitute orange juice for the non-alcoholic version of this.

  • Melt chocolate in a microwave-safe glass or ceramic bowl for 15 seconds at a time, stirring after each interval, until almost melted, 1 to 3 minutes. Mix crushed wafers, corn syrup, and rum into melted chocolate until well combined.

  • Cover and refrigerate until firm enough to handle, about 1 hour.

  • Shape into 24 balls and roll in chocolate sprinkles to coat. Place in a covered container and refrigerate for 2 days to allow flavors to develop.

Cook's Note:

You can coat the rum balls in ground almonds or flaked coconut instead of chocolate sprinkles, if preferred.

So good! I followed as written. I loved the strong rum flavor in this recipe. The chocolate sprinkles were the perfect end touch to roll them up! Read More
