DIRECTIONS

  • In medium bowl combine vanilla wafers and rum.
  • In a heavy saucepan over low heat melt the chips with the condensed milk. Stir constantly to avoid burning.
  • Gradually add crumb mixture and nuts to the melted chocolate mixture. Mix well.
  • Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. To speed this process up, you can chill in refrigerator.
  • Shape into 1 inch balls. Dip in chocolate and place on wax paper to set up.
  • NOTE: They have the small paper baking liners---I think they call them mini muffin baking liners. These are a great way to serve the rum balls and are attractive when using this as a gift. I store them in an air tight container for up to 2 weeks. I've also substituted pecans for the walnuts in this recipe. Both are good--so it really is a personal preference or nut availability.
