Rum Balls Recipe
2 tb Cocoa
2 1/2 Cups finely crushed vanilla wafers
1 Cup finely chopped pecans or walnuts
3 tb Light corn syrup
1/4 Cup rum or bourbon
Into a large bowl, sift the cocoa
and 1 Cup of confectioner's sugar. Mix in remaining ingredients. Form the
mixture into 1-inch balls with your hands. Sprinkle about 1 Cup confectioner's
sugar on a plate and roll the balls in it to coat.
Store in a tin for at least 1 week before giving them away. These cookies will
mellow with age and will keep up to 1 month. They can also be wrapped in plastic
wrap or foil. Makes about 36.
