GORGEOUS GORGEOUS GORGEOUS!!! These are a big hit! The balls themselves are nice but dipping them in chocolate takes them to a whole new level of DELISH. I did some of them with the powdered sugar some with white chocolate some with milk chocolate and some are double-dipped... heh-heh-heh.:) I used coconut rum which is excellent and doubled it (1/2c.) because they were otherwise looking too dry. Lastly I used a mixture of nuts - almonds pecans & walnuts. I think this recipe just made the cut for an annual holiday fave!
Even after 24 hrs this "dough" was still wet sticky and inedible. After crushing and adding an ADDITIONAL box of wafers they were fine. Seriously: how did these work out for so many other cooks? Other coconut rum ball recipes include an entire box of confectioners sugar. That would have fixed the consistency but really: they were YUMMY and less sweet w/double the wafers instead. My suggestion: make them with extra wafers and sugar on hand and far enough ahead of schedule to tinker with this recipe. With all good ingredients and no baking these will end up fine if you can achieve the proper consistency. But this recipe as written did not work for me.
These made excellent gifts for friends everyone loved them. I upped the rum amount to 1/2cup as others suggested. I also let them sit overnight before rolling them and they weren't too wet. I think one box of wafers was adequate even though some people didn't but I didn't eat any I think one full box is just enough so don't eat even a few. They are worth the wait and only get better with age. Thanks for a new holiday favorite.
I followed the recipe exact and everone loved them. Many in my family said they were pretty strong just how they like them. I did leave them set for a while for the flavors to mingle. Great easy recipe.
