Throwback Thursday: Rum Balls

"Throwback Thursday: Taking you back through the past 6 years by highlighting some of my favorite blog posts"

It's That Time of Year...

I'm in a baking frenzy trying to get all my cookies baked by Christmas. So far I've made batches of chocolate chip,cinnamon, sponge and rum balls.

We've been making rum balls in my family for as long as I can remember. Normally we'd roll the finished balls in powdered sugar turning them into rum filled snowballs. This year I decided to roll them in chocolate sprinkles instead. I love the way they turned out and will probably do them this way from now on.

(printable recipe)

1 large box vanilla wafers
3 TBS cocoa powder
3 TBS light corn syrup
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup rum
chocolate sprinkles (for rolling)

Process the vanilla wafers in a food processor until finely ground. Add the powdered sugar and cocoa powder and stir until combined. Add the corn syrup and rum and mix well. Chill if necessary and then shape into 1 inch balls. Roll the balls in the chocolate sprinkles. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
