“A coworker brought these to a potluck and they were inhaled. I misplaced the recipe for a while and found it again today. Before I lose it again I'm going to post it. I haven't made them myself yet so the number of balls this makes is an estimate. Unlike many rum ball recipes, this recipe contains no corn syrup. **Chill time not included in time to prepare**”
24-36 rum balls
