These are great fun to make for any special occasion, including Valentine's, Mother's day, Easter or Christmas. Arrange them in a small box or clear bag and tie up with a ribbon - they'll look like you bought them in a chocolate shop. Use a supermarket madeira or plain cake sponge cake to make the crumbs.
We made with white chocolate. Wow! So easy and tasted fabulous 👌 - 11 Oct 2015
I'm not a fan of rum but these are superb! You will make about three batches of rum balls with the white cake that you have to bake. I also used more white cake crumbs than the recipe calls for (about two cups each batch). I had more luck (less mess) when I let the dough sit in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes before I rolled them into balls. I rolled mine in chocolate jimmies, cocoa, coconut, crushed candy canes. So easy and very tasty - 17 Dec 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
These are a hit every time I make them although I do typically vary the recipe slightly by taste or by occasion...I've made these with pumpkin, chocolate, carrot, you name it cake and decorated them just as many different ways. Thank you for a great base recipe its def. a keeper - 09 Oct 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
