Ginger Spice Rum Balls

October 22, 2020

These Ginger Spice Rum Balls are the ultimate sweet, no-bake adult cookies! So easy to make and perfect for holidays and parties!

The holidays are around the corner, can you believe it?? I went to Michaels the other day and they already had Christmas decor for sale, so that means I have to start menu planning!

These easy, chewy ginger spice rum balls are a combination of crushed vanilla wafers, pecans, ginger snaps, powdered sugar, corn syrup, and spiced dark rum, and cinnamon. Roll them in some more crushed nuts, cocoa powder, or powdered sugar as a finishing touch. These rum balls will last a long time in the refrigerator or freeze them to enjoy later.

How do you make Ginger Spice Rum Balls?

These rum balls are soft, chewy, and a little spicy in flavor! I love making these because you can adjust the recipe a ever so slightly to your own taste simply by choosing different nuts, or spices, and you can even make them gluten free! Some different nut varieties that would also be great in these ginger spice rum balls are pecans, walnuts, or hazelnuts! Additionally, they couldn’t be easier to make!

You’ll start by pulsing the nuts, snickerdoodles and vanilla wafers in a food processor until all crumbled.
