    10 minutes

    I love rum balls and it's extremely easy to make your own using pre-made cake. Store in the refrigerator.

    could not roll into balls every disappointed in this recipe.  -  20 Nov 2013


    I'm not a fan of rum but these are superb! You will make about three batches of rum balls with the white cake that you have to bake. I also used more white cake crumbs than the recipe calls for (about two cups each batch). I had more luck (less mess) when I let the dough sit in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes before I rolled them into balls. I rolled mine in chocolate jimmies, cocoa, coconut, crushed candy canes. So easy and very tasty  -  17 Dec 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    These are a hit every time I make them although I do typically vary the recipe slightly by taste or by occasion...I've made these with pumpkin, chocolate, carrot, you name it cake and decorated them just as many different ways. Thank you for a great base recipe its def. a keeper  -  09 Oct 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
