Holiday Food Recipe: Rum Balls

Rum Balls.The secret is at the end of the recipe.

The holidays are a great time to combine various foods, in this case, chocolate and rum. I have always been a fan of Rum Balls. As a matter of fact, when I go to a party, I specifically look for them and then I selfishly load of my plate (or hand, if plates aren’t available), then I nosh away. So rather than seeming greedy and rude, i decided that it was my obligation to start bringing them to the parties. So when I do, this recipe is what I use.



1 box     Nabisco vanilla wafers
1 cup     powdered sugar
3 Tbsp   cocoa powder
4 Tbsp   white karo syrup
1 cup      pecans (optional, I am not a fan of nuts in these, but I know plenty of people who are)
1/2 cup   spiced rum ( i use captain morgans)
1 box of powdered sugar for rolling them in


  1. Crush vanilla wafers in processor.
  2. Add crushed nuts. Then add remaining ingredients (except powdered sugar for rolling) and mix well.
  3. Form into 1 inch balls and roll in powdered sugar to completely coat. (you can also roll them in cocoa or dip them in melted chocolate)
  4. Store in airtight container.

FYI: the longer they sit the stronger they become
