Rum or Bourbon Balls
1 cup powdered sugar 1/3 cup Rum or Bourbon 1/4 cup light corn syrup 2 1/2 cups of crushed vanilla wafers (a food processor makes this step easy!) 1 tablespoon cocoa powder Optional: 1 cup chopped pecans
Stir together powdered sugar, alcohol and corn syrup. Then add the crushed wafers and chopped nuts. Mix until evenly moistened and pinch a walnut-sized piece and roll it firmly between the palms of your hands, repeat until all balls have been made. Then sift 1/2 cup powdered sugar and 1 tablespoon cocoa powder onto a plate, roll the balls in the powder until evenly coated. Store in an airtight container with waxed paper between layers. Recommend candy-sized Christmas cups for serving.
Optional: Dip ’em in chocolate fountain or fondue.
