½ cup rum (can be replaced with other dark liquor)
2 TBS light corn syrup
2 ½ cups finely crushed vanilla wafers
1 cup finely chopped walnuts or pecans
In large bowl, sift together 1 cup of the confectioners’ sugar and cocoa powder. Stir in liquor and corn syrup. Stir in vanilla wafers and walnuts, and mix well. Place mixture in refrigerator for about 30 minutes to firm up.
Place the remainder ½ cup confectioners’ sugar in a shallow bowl or dish.
Using your hands, roll dough into 1-inch balls. Roll the balls in confectioners’ sugar to coat evenly. Place on baking sheet, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate over night.
