Intoxicating chocolate snack with rum or bourbon
I got this from my mom who uses more alcohol than the original
recipe called for but less than I like to use. It makes a great
Ingredients(Makes about 30 small balls)
- 3 cups vanilla wafers
- 1 cup powered sugar
- 1 1/2 cups chopped nuts
- 1 1/2 Tbsp cocoa powder
- 2 Tbsp white corn syrup
(honey also works well)
- 1/2 cup rum or bourbon
Mix all dry ingredients and set aside.
Mix corn syrup or honey with rum or bourbon to thin the syrup.
Blend wet mixture into dry ingredients with fork. Mix well.
Allow to sit for 1-2 hours.
At this point, if you let it sit a couple of hours, you can come
back and add another
of rum or bourbon and let sit again.
This process may be repeated a few times to your taste. The last
time, the mix should sit a couple of hours so it's not really moist.
There's a good midpoint between too moist and too dry where rolling
into balls won't be difficult (too wet) or cause crumbling (too dry).
Roll into balls, then roll in powered sugar to make a sugar coating.
When rolling in powered sugar, the moister they are, the more sugar
will be absorbed over time. They may need another roll in
the sugar right before serving.
easy to moderate.
1/2 to 1 hour preparation; 3 or more hours waiting.
approximate measurement OK.
