      These were totally awesome! They went like hotcakes at my office party today. I used food service gloves when I made the cookies into balls--voila! no sticking! After I chilled them for about an hour, I re-rolled them in the powdered sugar, as the powdered sugar from the first roll got absorbed. They were much better after sitting overnight in the fridge. I got 34 1" rum balls out of the recipe.

      All I have to say is MMMMMMMMMMMM!!!!!
      I did not find they needed to mellow, they were fine as is. I also didn't experience the dough sticking to my hands.

      I ended up making these twice because of a stupid mistake. Probably nobody but me will do this, but I might as well confess. First of all, vanilla wafers are not sold in Japan, where I live. I decided to substitute a different kind of crisp cookie. The first time, I bought cookies at a neighborhood bakery. Several people have given the weight of the cookies, so I thought it would work. The cookies were in little bags with a small pouch of dessicant. Well, long story short, I luckily tasted the mixture left in the bowl after making balls. What was that hard stuff? Yes, it was beads of silica gel. Oops. So anyway, I started again today. I do think I learned something from the first experience (besides not using ingredients not called for, especially if they are inedible.) So I toasted the pecans and chopped them separately because I wanted some crunch. I broke up the cookies in the food processor, added the cocoa and powdered sugar and transferred it all to a bowl. I then cautiously added the liquids and stirred in the nuts. This time I used packaged Langue de Chat cookies, which didn't have dessicant. Although I was worried about the mixture getting sticky, it was perfect with the amounts given. I used white rum. I have tasted these, and they seem quite good, but do need some time for the flavor to develop. Thank you for sharing this recipe with us.
