Published June 22, 2010 1:01AM (EDT)


  • 1 (12 oz) box Vanilla wafer cookies, crushed
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts
  • 3/4 cup 10x powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa
  • 1/2 cup rum (dark rum, spiced rum, light rum, flavored rum...any kind you like)
  • 3 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • More powdered sugar or cocoa for dusting


  1. Crush cookies and nuts with food processor.
  2. Combine with powdered sugar and cocoa, then add rum and corn syrup. Stir until smooth.
  3. Shape dough into one-inch balls and roll in powdered sugar or cocoa.
  4. Store in an airtight container for 2 or 3 days before serving to develop flavor.
  5. Just before serving, roll in powdered sugar or cocoa again.
  6. Serve with milk, coffee, or your favorite rum punch (if you want a double hit). Good friends and laughter are good accompaniments, too.
