    I get such RAVE reviews when I make these. The only changes I make is that I use Malibu Rum instead of regular's what I have on hand and personally I prefer it because the flavor is much more mild and I'm not a big rum fan. I definately feel this is a recipe that you should ALWAYS DOUBLE as they will disappear quickly. And they really do get better after a few days...they just don't normally last that long! haha I wouldn't suggest trying to crush the ingredients with anything other than a food processor. It just gives you a totally different type of cookie. I most like these when the cookies and nuts are ground to an almost powder consistancy. That way you taste the 'cookie' not the 'ingredients' if that makes sense to you.  -  03 Dec 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These were the hit of every party I took them to! - so delicious! Only thing I do different is toss them in granulated sugar rather than confection - the sparkles look nicer.  -  28 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These are awesome!! I made them last year and they were a hit! I use Bacardi Vanilla flavored rum instead of plain rum and it gives it a little something extra, and this year I will triple the recipe, due to the high demand!! I also throw the nuts and cookies in the food processor to make sure they are ground up finely.  -  22 Dec 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
