Rum Balls

Rum balls, another traditional treat at Joyous Home. These are chocolatey and smooth.



2 boxes of vanilla wafers
1 cup dark rum
1 1/4 cups dark chocolate chips
2 14oz. cans sweetened condensed milk


Melt your chocolate by way of double boiler or your easiest method. Crush the cookies in a blender. Add 1 cup and rum and mix with a fork until distributed evenly. Vanilla wafers and rum go very yummy together when paired.

Add the sweetened condensed milk to the chocolate and stir until smooth. Add the chocolate mixture to the cookie crumbs. Chill this for an hour or so.

Scoop and roll into 1″ balls.  Roll the rum balls in the sprinkles.  

Store in the refrigerator.


If you live in high humidity, try reducing the sweetened condensed milk to start. Once the cookie holds together, you’ve added enough liquid.
