Rum Balls Recipe


I do not know about you, but I love rum balls! They are so darned tasty. With the holiday season just around the corner, you may be looking for new takes on traditional holiday cookie recipes. These unique rum balls are easy to make ahead – so no last minute worrying about what to put on the cookie tray – and store very well.

Notes:

• This rum balls recipe brings a twist to traditional Rum Balls with a version of the old recipe popularized the 1980s!

• If you do not have a food processor, you can place the oreos into a double (two bags, one inserted into the other) zipper gallon storage bags. Close most of the end of those zipper bags (leave it a touch open at the end). Now, either roll those cookies until they are finely crushed with a rolling pin, or smack them with a kitchen mallet.

• You may substitute brandy or bourbon for the rum if you prefer.

• For my UK and Australian friends: confectioners sugar is icing sugar (powdered sugar, 10x)

• Decorator sugar can be sanding sugar, sparkling sugar, or large crystal sugar. I get mine at a local Mennonite store that has the biggest selection of sprinkles, sugars, and decorator topping you have ever seen! If you would like to use colored sugar, you can make your own colored sugar by following these step by step instructions. You can use plain old white sugar and these will taste fine and dandy, however I use decorator sugar on my holiday cookies for that extra little but of glitz for the holiday season (I love sparkles! I swear I could have been Rainbow Brite in another life.)

• Let set for at least a few hours, for best results, store in a covered container in a coll place for a few days.
