A lovely change from chocolate rum balls, these coconut rum balls are very sweet and delightfully crunchy. You will need to make them at least a day ahead.
GORGEOUS, GORGEOUS, GORGEOUS!!! These are a big hit! The balls themselves are nice, but dipping them in chocolate takes them to a whole new level of DELISH. I did some of them with the powdered sugar, some with white chocolate, some with milk chocolate and some are double-dipped... heh-heh-heh. I used coconut rum which is excellent and doubled it (1/2c.), because they were otherwise looking too dry. Lastly, I used a mixture of nuts - almonds, pecans & walnuts. I think this recipe just made the cut for an annual holiday fave! - 02 Dec 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I made these several days ago for all my neighbor's Christmas treat plates.....they are the best rum balls I've had and the neighbors want more!!! Very addictive and hard to resist. - 26 Dec 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This recipe was easy and delicious. I agree that they only improve with age. I could not make enough of them to satisfy the crowd at work. Definitely a hit! - 05 Dec 2001 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
