Easy to make. It took me a while to realize that I needed to slightly wet my hands when rolling the balls so that the sprinkles would stick.

My sister who is not experienced in the kitchen wanted to impress her friends by making last minute homemade Christmas gifts. This was so easy to follow for her, no baking or cooking! No nuts were used and they turned out just fine. She bought some festive tins to package them and placed mini ornaments to jazz it up. More importantly they tasted authentic and it looked like she was slaving all day to make them.

All my relatives and all my co-workers couldn't believe I'd made these myself, they all thought they were store-bought! The chocolate sprinkles didn't stick to the balls, but other than that, they were AWESOME!!

I made these for a cookie exchange last year. They were very easy and turned out wonderfully. I used spiced rum, and rolled them in chocolate shavings, toasted coconut and crushed skor bits. Everyone loved them.

I was really disappointed with these. They were easy enough to make but nothing would stick to them when I rolled them into balls - not even cocoa powder or icing sugar! Not sure what went wrong. I ended up pressing them into an 8x8 pan and hubby and I ate them as 'rum brownies' for dessert.

I made these and thought they were absolutely terrible. Had a very hard time rolling them in anything because the batter was so dry after putting it in the fridge for 1 hour. Would not recommend these at all. Nobody liked them.

I made them this year (2006) with half rum and half orange juice. Now my grandson can eat his favourite also.
