Rum and coconut are a perfect combination and work well in these sweet treats. Bound together with biscuit crumbs and condensed milk no cooking or melting is required.
A unique take on the classic, but definitely worth it! - 06 Dec 2016
This was my second time making rum balls, the first time I made chocolate ones. These coconut rum balls tasted sooooo good and were very easy to make. I used crushed almonds instead of walnuts because I can't stand walnuts, and they turned out great. I made them a week ahead and put them in tin cans, made EXCELLENT Christmas gifts and stored well in the fridge. The only problem was after you roll a few balls, your hands get very sticky, so have a spoon nearby to scrape the sticky stuff off your hands after rolling a some balls!! - 29 Jun 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
A great variation for rum balls! I make a few changes to the listed recipe, however. I prefer to toast the coconut before I roll the balls in it- YUM! I also add about 1/8 cup more rum (coconut flavored), otherwise the coconut flavor completely masks the rum flavor. - 20 Dec 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
