Excellent recipe! I double the rum and use Barcardi 151 for an extra kick! Crazy thing is the fact that I'm not a rum drinker.

Thank goodness for this recipe!! I wanted to bring something to a dinner party that was fast and easy to make. This recipe was incredibly easy to follow, no baking necessary! Instead of rolling the balls in sugar, we used a sifter to sprinkle the rum balls in sugar. I also used a little bit more bacardi. Two thumbs up for this one!

These were great, but I changed the rum to Bailey's Irish Cream and the walnuts to pecans.

Accidentally found the tequila bottle when choosing what I thought was the rum......oh, well, another classic has been born. Did it again with the right stuff and yummy just like my mistakes, the tequila balls.
