Rum BallsPrint This
- 3 cups vanilla wafer crumbs, ground fine
- 1 cup finely ground walnuts
- ¾ cup powdered sugar
- ¼ coup cocoa powder
- ½ dark rum
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 tablespoons light, clear corn syrup
- Sprinkles, coconut, cocoa powder or powdered sugar for decorating
In a large bowl, stir together the vanilla wafer crumbs, walnuts, powdered sugar and cocoa. Combine well.
Add in the rum,vanilla extract and corn syrup and mix well until you have a moist thoroughly combined mixture.
Form into one inch balls and dip and roll the balls into your sprinkles, coconut, cocoa or powdered sugar. If you have a bit of water on your fingers while you are rolling the balls, it will create a slight wetness which will make the sprinkles stick much easier.
Refrigerate until you are ready to use. You can keep them in the fridge up to two weeks.
