    They turned out soooo great, quick and easy just like the recipe said. Might make more tomorrow!

    Amazing! Used gluten free wafers on one batch and added more pecans, because gluten free wafers are expensive! Added a little more corn syrup and I used bourbon instead! Tossed in a mix of cocoa, wafers and pecans. Will make again and again for sure!

    Awesomely! I immediately made two more batches, since people ate these right up! I used a good brand of spiced rum. I also used 1/2 vanilla wafers and 1/2 shortbread with the rest of the batches... great taste!

    The Rum Balls were delicious. I rolled some in just powdered sugar, some in a half cocoa powder and powdered sugar and added cinnamon to the half and half mixture and rolled the rest in that mixture. Surprise several friends like the cinnamon ones the best!!

    Haven't made yet, but I have a very similar recipe that doesn't use corn syrup but does have melted butter and a little honey. This may address the gooey factor.

    Good. A little too gooey but that is likely operator error. I’ll eat a few more and reevaluate....

    These turned out excellent! I had a great time making them as well. It was a bit of a process but the outcome was so worth it!
