Dessert Alert! ~ Rum Balls ~

Here is a quick and super easy dessert recipe that is sure to please the adults!
It’s called Rum balls, and yes they contain alcohol so keep away from the kids.
Here’s the line up only 4 ingredients I promise.
Vanilla Wafers, Butter, Rum and powdered sugar.
Rum Ball Ingredients
Crush up your vanilla wafers in a blender, food processer or chopper whatever you have. If you don’t have any of those and you’re desperate banging the heck out of them in the bag works too… trust me I know. *wink*
vanilla cookies
When you’re cookies are crushed till they are pretty uniform but not into cookie dust add in a tablespoon of butter and 1/4 cup of rum and mix with the cookies.
Keep adding butter and rum little by little until you get a chunky sort of sticky batter like it looks below.
It’s not an exact science, add more rum if you want them stronger and more butter if you would rather then not so strong, but why would you not want them strong with a kick?
As long as the texture is moist enough to roll up in a ball with your hands like below.

After that I usually roll it around in some powdered sugar to keep the outside from being too sticky and what doesn’t taste good with powdered sugar on top of it, you just can’t go wrong.
After they are all done, I like them up and dust a little more powdered sugar on top right before I serve them.
Rumball and powdered sugar
Enjoy and don’t forget to have a designated driver!!

Yum! I'd have to eat these all when my kids weren't home, they wouldn't care that they had alcohol in them. They'd just see forbidden cookies.

oooh.. I love rum balls. I make them at Christmas, but my recipe is chocolate based. Would like to try these! Wonder how many varieties of rum balls there are, and how many would be too many to make?
Found you via link party.
