I've made rum balls for many years. Last year, I was given this recipe. I don't make them with cocoa any more.
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1⁄2 cup dark rum
- 1⁄4 cup light corn syrup
- 3 cups vanilla wafer crumbs
- 1 1⁄2 cups pecans, finely chopped
- 1⁄2 cup powdered sugar
- 1⁄2 cup powdered sugar, to coat
