Would not make this again.
I would not make these again. They were messy and hard to serve to guests. Not to mention the recipe calls for 1/2 cup of Rum and the alcohol test was very overpowering. 1 star

Would make this again.
I found that it only turned out about three dozen balls. Enjoyed the taste, but did not like the fact that they did not seem to set well as they flattened when placed on top of each other. 3 stars

Would make this again.
This makes about 4 dozen. I make this recipe each year. Using Spiced Rum and adding more, gives the Balls a delicious kick. 5 stars
