Rum balls were always a favourite of mine as a kid. I’d see them sitting on the cookie tray after dinner, rolled in sugar or red, white, and green sprinkles and I’d start plotting how many I could get away with eating. They were just so damn easy to pop in my mouth.
Last year my grandparents were in Florida for the holidays. Yes, this is another of Nana’s recipes, lol. I was scouring the internet looking for a recipe like hers, because I wasn’t sure she’d have it with her down south. Thankfully, my Mom had it for me, but I learned something in all that googling.Rum balls mean a lot of different things, to a lot of different people.
I know, you’re thinking “why the question mark?”. Honestly, because I don’t know. I don’t know if these are typical rum balls or not. Some people seem to think that truffles with rum in them are rum balls. Other people think it’s a rum ball if there are crushed up arrowroot cookies in it. These ones are neither of those, but they do have oats in them. So, rum balls?…
