    Brilliant!
    Just the thing for a chilly day - a latte and a rum ball - my world is warm and fuzzy! If I can find some coffee wafers - I'll make it with those and roll in finely ground coffee......mmmm - the coconut suggestion sounds great too.....

    This is amazingly good!!! I used walnuts and pecans. I used 1/4 cup powdered sugar in the rum balls and 1/4 cup to coat the outside of the rum balls. Great recipe that I will always use! UPDATE: Instead of powdered sugar, I just coated some of these in grated coconut and they were OUT OF THIS WORLD GOOD! I will definitely do this from now on! It tastes like a gourmet Mounds candy bar!
