These fun and festive no bake chocolate Rum Balls are made easy with six ingredients in your food processor. They can be decorated to suit any occasion. I love to fix these for my friends and family for the holidays. Nothing says I love you and I appreciate you like a big plate of these tasty goodies. They look gorgeous on my Christmas cookie trays every year.

  • 1 box
    vanilla wafers
  • 1 1/2 c
    roasted almonds
  • 3/4 c
    powdered sugar
  • 1/3 c
    unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/2 c
    light rum
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp
    corn syrup

How to Make Rum Balls


  1. Using a food processor crush cookies and nuts until finely ground. Move contents to a medium bowl. Stir in powdered sugar and cocoa until well mixed.
  2. Add the rum and the corn syrup a little at a time alternating between the two. You want just enough for everything to pull into a dough that you can roll into balls.
  3. Roll into one inch balls and then roll the mixture through sprinkles, powdered sugar, or cocoa. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
