    LOVED IT!! Used Captian Morgan's spiced rum and it was a wonderful flavor. Had tons of people tell me it was the best rum balls they had ever had! Have given three people this recipe so far. This one goes in my favorites for sure! Thanks for sharing it.  -  04 Dec 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Quite tasty! I didn't roll them in my hand. I used a small cookie scoop-like an ice cream scoop-with a squeeze handle that ejects the dough. You get a rounded top with a flat bottom. (Perfect for portion control). I put the ground nuts in a small deep bowl and dropped the dough balls into it. You can do about four at a time. Just shake the bowl in a circular motion. The dough rounds itself out and coats each one. It really speeds up the process. I gave these as gifts as got rave reviews.  -  23 Dec 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Turned out great! They get better with age. Also, I put the walnuts IN the mixture rather than rolling the balls in them.  -  15 Jan 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
