Rum Balls


These classic rumballs are sure to please both young and old. Decorate them by rolling in cocoa, sprinkles or coconut flakes, or by dipping them in chocolate, and then topping with drizzled chocolate or sprinkles. To make the rumballs easy to handle when dipping in melted chocolate, freeze them first.


Prepare the Rum Balls

1. Cream margarine and sugars. Add eggs, one at a time. Add cocoa and rum.
2. Pour over cake crumbs, mix well to coat completely.
3. Refrigerate for four to five hours to set.
4. Form into one-inch balls. Roll in coconut or chocolate sprinkles.
5. Rum balls can be frozen plain and dipped into chocolate or drizzled with white chocolate.


Cake crumbs can be added to any chocolate cream to which rum extract is added.
