Perfect little treats made in no time!
I always make these with butter biscuits, but vanilla wafers would work too.
You can substitute ground chocolate with milk chocolate (that you melt with the butter) or even with hot chocolate mix (like Nesquik).
Add more rum instead of the milk to make these stronger. Alternately, you can skip the rum and add only milk if you’re making these for kids too. You could also use rum extract / artificial rum flavoring which will give you the taste but not the alcohol.
I love rum balls rolled into coconut and in cocoa. You could also roll them in chopped nuts, powdered sugar or sprinkles.
As these have to be stored in the fridge, they will harden (because of the butter). This is why I usually leave them out on the counter for about 10 minutes before serving, which brings them to room temperature and softens them a bit.
