Chocolate Rum Balls

For frootijen! These are a holiday staple of mine. I usually use this basic recipe from, but sometimes I use melted semi-sweet chocolate (instead of the cocoa powder). I also sometimes roll the balls around a candied cherry.

Chocolate Rum Balls

3 1/4 c. crushed vanilla wafers (about one standard box)
3/4 c. confectioners' sugar
1/4 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 c. chopped walnuts
(I prefer pecans.)
3 Tbls.light corn syrup
1/2 cup rum
(You can also use other spirits - like Brandy.)

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

Makes: 48 balls

Mmm.. don't suppose you have any leftovers hanging about do you? *G*

They have remade "When A Stragner Calls".. do you have any interest in seeing it? It's the one with the babysitter getting phone calls- "Have you checked the children?".. it will likely be a girls scary movie date in the future.. just wanted to see if you'd be interested in joining us :) Otherwise let's plan for breakfast or lunch sometime soon!

PS: I truly enjoyed Fridays version of Junk In The Trunk! :)
....Frankenstein never scared me.....

I don't! They were gone last week, but next year I'll make sure you get some!

YES! I'd love to go. :) I love the original and I just saw the preview for this one.

Thanks! You know what that is from, right?
