Rum Balls – a classic holiday treat! Crushed cookies, ground pecans, and spiced rum make a delicious no bake dessert. Really cute in cookie tins!
Holiday cookie tin season is my favorite season.
Especially this year when we can’t really hang out with people. So a cute cookie tin filled with delicious treats left on the front porch is a great way to make fun holiday memories with your family and friends.
Rum balls are so easy and so delicious! They’re completely no bake so you really just have to combine all the ingredients, roll it into balls, and roll the balls into your desired toppings, like powdered sugar or chopped nuts. They’re a holiday classic and a must make!
