Notes

Makes ~30 walnut sized rum balls
You can use dark rum if you prefer, or substitute the rum with orange juice for a non alcoholic version
I highly recommend you make these at least the night before, for the flavors to develop - they taste very strong to begin with but once the alcohol has a chance to develop it lessens.
