Rum Bites – Make a few dozen for your next party 

Today I am sharing my easy recipe for Chocolate Rum Bites and I think you will love them

You may want to take Note:  Make plenty because these will not last long.  After the first bite, one is not enough.

Vanilla Wafers


This recipe uses 1 box of vanilla wafers

Using a large mixing bowl, crush until a fine mixture

Adding Ingredients


Add all other ingredients except rum and mix well.

Adding the good stuff

Add the rum and stir well until it forms into a dough like concoction.


Roll the dough



Roll mixture into 1 inch balls.

Roll into confectioners sugar and coat well.



All done….store in a well-sealed container.  If needed you can re-coat with powdered sugar


Delicious, moist bites with a wonderful smooth texture.
Total Time 30 mins
Servings 24


  • 1 – 12 oz. box vanilla wafers crushed
  • 3/4 - cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 - cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 & 1/2 - cup chopped walnuts Optional
  • 3 - tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1/2 - cup to ¾ cup rum or bourbon – depends on your desired taste


  • In a large bowl, stir together the crushed vanilla wafers, 3/4 cup confectioners' sugar, cocoa, and nuts. Blend in corn syrup and rum.
  • Shape into 1 inch balls, and roll in additional confectioners' sugar.
  • Store in an airtight container for several days to develop the flavor.
  • Roll again in confectioners' sugar before serving.

I make mine with a little more rum,  but if you have not made or tasted Rum Bites I would recommend starting with a ½ cup of the alcohol until you find your desired taste. 

I usually make this recipe without nuts, but you can all nuts if your family likes them. Be sure to chop nuts very finely.

I hope you are enjoying your Holiday Season.

    My neighbor made the same cookies! She included the recipe with the beautiful box of them she brought over. They are really yummy, but surprised my kids! They hadn’t realized they would have rum in them, lol
