Rum Balls

December 24, 2009

This holiday treat was obviously created for parents trying to get through parties with their kids — an not wanting to have a cup of punch in hand at all times!  Quick and easy, these cookies definitely pack a punch.  They taste best with a light rum, rather than a spiced one.  You can also make a chocolate version, but finding chocolate wafer cookies!

You will need:

  • 2 packages vanilla wafers
  • 1 lb walnuts, finely diced
  • 1/4 c rum
  • 1/2 c honey
  • Powdered sugar

Then you…

  1. Mix well.  Add more honey and rum as needed to make dough stick in ball shape.
  2. Roll into balls.  Roll balls in powdered sugar.
  3. Store in a tightly covered container and keep cool.
  4. Enjoy responsibly!

  1. Just to emphasize: these are delicious, but sometimes contain a substantial amount of rum. Eater beware!
