My first time making rumballs. I've never actually had a rumball prior to this occasion...
According to my husband (who has had rumballs before), these weren't bad. A bit on the dry side but not excessively so - an extra splash or two of rum would take care of that problem with no ill-effect. More rum? Yes please!
I'll probably try a different recipe next time, just to see what's out there. Hey...do you have a recipe I could try?
*no source cited because I can't remember where I got the recipe...*
2 1/2 cups crushed vanilla wafers
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup spiced rum
2 tablespoons corn syrup
1 cup crushed almonds
Sift cocoa with 1 cup of the powdered sugar. Stir in the rum and syrup. Add crushed wafers and nuts; mix together thoroughly.
Form into balls and dredge with remaining powdered sugar.
