The rum is gone because I made RUM BALLS!
Quite possibly everyone's favourite... ;-) I make these early so they have a week or two to mature...
2 1/2 cups Nilla Wafers (about one 11 oz box)
1 cup confectioner's/powdered sugar
3/4 cup pecan pieces
2 tablespoons cocoa
3 tablespoons corn syrup
1/4 cup rum
Crush/Crumb Nilla wafers in food processor/blender until fine
(Should measure 2 1/2 cups after crushed). Place in large bowl. Chop
pecan pieces in food processor/blender until fine (again 3/4 cup measure
should reflect after being chopped/ground up). Add to bowl. Add the
rest of the ingredients to the bowl. Mix, using hands is probably best
(kneading together the ingredients until thoroughly combined). Form into
balls about 1" in diameter by rolling between palms, and then coat in
topping (ground nuts, sprinkles, cocoa, powdered sugar) by rolling in a
bowl or plate of the topping. (May have to add more rum as necessary to
maintain desired consistency).
For best flavour, let mature a week or so in a sealed container.
