Coconut Rum Balls
Let’s get ready to rum-ball . . .
Why This Recipe Works
Rum balls are boozy no-bake confections made by combining crushed cookies with rum and a binder. For the cookie base, we chose ground vanilla wafers for their straightforward sweet flavor. Light corn syrup was our favorite binder: It held the treats together without adding unwanted flavors. Stirring some sweetened coconut and coconut rum into the base gave these balls Caribbean flair.
