A really simple recipe for really tasty rum balls. Momma Webster is the mom of one of my Wife’s dojo buddies.
1 box finely crushed vanilla wafers
2 cups chopped nuts (optional – we substituted about 1 cup of crushed graham crackers)
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 lb 10x milled confectioners sugar
1/2 cup rum
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1 stick margarine or butter
Mix vanilla wafer crumbs, chopped nuts (or graham crackers), cocoa powder and 10x sugar.
Mix rum and corn syrup.
Melt butter and pour into dry ingredients along with rum and corn syrup.
Mix to uniform consistency and roll into balls of desired size. Roll in regular sugar to coat.
