Oreo Rum Balls


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.

24 balls


  • 2 (1 ounce) squares semisweet baking chocolate

  • 2 cups crushed chocolate wafers (such as Oreo®), filling discarded

  • ¼ cup corn syrup

  • ¼ cup dark rum

  • ¼ cup chocolate sprinkles, or as needed


  1. 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.

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

  3. 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.
