Yield: 4 servings
|3½ cup||Vanilla wafer crumbs|
|1½ cup||Confectioners sugar, divided|
|1 cup||Finely chopped pecans|
|¼ cup||Unsweetened cocoa|
|⅓ cup||Light or dark rum (I split this with Amaretto)|
|⅓ cup||Karo Light Corn Syrup|
|⅓ cup||Fine chopped Maraschino cherries|
Mix crumbs with 1 cup of the confectioners sugar, pecans and cocoa and cherries. Stir in rum and corn syrup.
(I like to use a fork at this point to help in stirring the mixture) Shape into 1-inch balls. Roll balls on remaining sugar. Store in tightly covered container.
Refrigerate. Makes about 4½ dozen.
The ladies really like this one since it isn't overpowering.
You're welcome in advance.....Ed Hint: Make them about a week before needed. Bring back to room temp.
