Moreish and addictive, these rum balls are great to have round the house at Christmas for unexpected guests. You can also make them to give as gifts. Get creative with the biscuit crumbs you use, though boudoir biscuits or amaretti biscuits work a treat.
These rum balls are much dryer than most. I made them ahead of time but quite was worried that they would be completly dryed out by the time I had to serve them guests. The flavour was okay, though. I think I would add extra chocolate chips and some more corn syrup if I made them again. - 09 Dec 2000 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Very tastey and not as sweet as some. I put the piece of cherry in the middle and wrapped the dough around. Makes a large batch. - 11 Dec 2000 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Very quick and easy to make. A bit rich, but everyone loved them. I would probably quarter the cherries rather than half them next time. - 26 Dec 2000 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
