Our Best Rum Balls

Rum balls are a truffle-like confection, being sweet, dense balls flavored with chocolate and rum. As their name implies, these sweets contain rum and because they are not baked, the alcohol flavor and kick are not lost during baking. This sweet is especially popular during the holiday season.read more

Ingredients

Our Best Rum Balls

  • 8 ounces walnuts, finely ground

  • 3 egg whites, lightly beaten
  • 4-6 ounces chocolate sprinkles
  • About 1 tablespoon Bacardi dark rum

In bowl mix together walnuts, sweet chocolate, sugar and half the egg whites. Add enough rum to moisten mixture so it holds together to form dough. Shape mixture into 1" balls.
