Our family loves this treat. It's definitely an adult treat, but you can also make it kid friendly.

How to Make Rum Balls

Step-by-Step

  • 1In a large mixing bowl, combine the wafer crumbs, pecans, confectioners sugar and cocoa (yes 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons. I don't know why the extra but it makes a BIG difference.)
  • 2Mix the rum, the honey, and water; stir into dry mixture. Mixture should be moist enough to form balls.
  • 3Shape into balls the size of small walnuts. Roll in extra confectioners sugar or extra wafer crumbs.
  • 4Store in airtight container. The longer they set, the better (and STRONGER) they get.


    You can also cover them in your favorite chocolate covering. If you prefer a nonalcoholic recipe, substitute the rum with orange concentrate and a splash of rum extract.
