Would make this again.
For the previous poster, these are safe for kids. The alcohol does not evaporate immediately, but think about it...we're talking about a half cup of rum divided into 60! Which, if you do the math, means that there is about a third of a teaspoon in each rum ball. Seriously nothing to worry about. 5 stars

i have a question. Is this safe for children or dose the alcohol evaporate? If not do you know a non alchol substitute? 5 stars
