Does anyone have a terrific recipe (no cook) for Rum or Bourbon Balls without any nuts?
Thanks!

    Search this board for Midnight Rum balls. I just made my first batch of the season tonight with bourbon instead of rum and without nuts....they're always a hit. I think I'm going to try a batch with TJ's Candy Cane Jo-Jos and peppermint schnapps tomorrow.

      Oh those Midnight Rum Balls are good! One of my girlfriends just asked me to make her a batch for Christmas. I use bourbon too. Here's the link:

        And see this thread for many variation ideas.

        One note: Be conservative with the amount of liquid - hold a bit back when you first mix it in. Others have reported a goopy mixture when using the full amount of liquid. Or perhaps it depends on the humidity of the environment. Dunno, but definitely don't add too much rum (or bourbon, or whatever).

          Oh man, I made those last year due to the recommendations from this board, and oh man, they were incredible! My mom was very skeptical of the Oreos, but she was won over after the first bite.
