Peanut Butter Rum Balls

Not for Children under the age of 21!  I wanted to try making some rum balls, but the only rum we had in the house was Malibu coconut flavored rum so that is what I used.  MMMM, this was just perfect!  Instead of a heavy overwhelming rum flavor in the candy, it was a more delicate subtle taste, with just a hint of coconut.   All you need are one of these yummy treats for a dessert and you will be satisfied.


1 1/4 cup Creamy Peanut Butter
1/2 cup Butter
2 1/2 cups Powder Sugar
1 shot glass of Rum
2 cups Chocolate/or White Chocolate


  1. In the microwave melt you butter, for about 30 seconds.
  2. Stir together all the ingredients, till a smooth texture or all combined.
  3. Form the dough into balls.
  4. Place on parchment paper lined cookie sheet and place in the refrigerator for about 45 minutes.
  5. Melt the chocolate in a bowl till thin.
  6. Dip each ball into the chocolate till coated and place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
  7. Put back in the refrigerator till ready to serve.
