Christmas Rum Balls

 Recipe by Linda W.

Ingredients :

  • 2 tablespoons Cocoa Powder
  • 1½ cups Confectioner's Powdered Sugar
  • ¾ cup Rum or Bourbon (Bacardi 151 recommended)
  • 6 tablespoons Light Corn Syrup
  • 2½ cups Crushed Vanilla Wafers
  • 1 cup Broken Pecans

Preparation :
VERY IMPORTANT
AT NO TIME SHOULD WATER BE USED AS A SUBSTITUTE FOR THE RUM, ''ESPECIALLY'' ON THE HANDS DURING THE FINAL STAGE.
Sift together Cocoa & 1 cup Confectioner's Powdered Sugar.  Combine Rum & Corn Syrup, & stir in.  In separate container, add Vanilla Wafers & Pecans & mix thoroughly.  Now mix all ingredients.  Roll mixture into small balls.  To prevent the mixture from drying in your hand & in bowl, add a few drops of Rum.  Roll each ball in the remaining Confectioner's Powdered Sugar & store in an airtight container in freezer for a week to ripen.

Makes about 1/3 pound.

Hint :
Rum Balls Must Be Kept In Freezer & can last over 1 year in freezer.
