No Bake Chocolate Rum Balls

No Bake Chocolate Rum Balls

These no-bake chocolate rum balls are for sure a crowd pleaser. For the last several years I haven't made these for the Holidays. But, this year we pulled out the recipe for these little treats.

These are no-bake and oh! so easy to make. I had these finished in about 30 minutes. The rum flavor really comes through after a day or so in the refrigerator.

Rum Ball Recipe

This recipe calls for Vanilla Wafers ground pecans or walnuts, baking cocoa, and powdered sugar.

I mixed all of the dry ingredients in a medium-sized bowl and then added the liquid ingredients.

No hand mixer or stand mixer needed here. Just work everything together with a large fork or wooden spoon.

Following you'll find all of the ingredients and directions to make these little beauties.


1 cup ground pecan or walnuts (I used pecans)
2-1/2 cups Vanilla Wafers (Almost a whole box)
1 cup powdered sugar
3 tablespoons baking cocoa
1/4 cup rum (I used just a little more)
3 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons water

  1. Add all dry ingredients into a medium-sized mixing bowl.
  2. Add rum, honey, and water and mix until all combined.
  3. Roll into 1-inch balls and then roll in more powdered sugar.
  4. Refrigerate in an airtight container.
I yielded about 30 of these chocolate rum balls minus the ones that I ate along the way.

As always thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy!
