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.

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.
