2012 Linda's Traditional Rum Balls

I made 18 of these jars of fermented goodness. I do have to do a taste test each week to make sure they are  yummy! Whew! When you open the jar and inhale...you had better not drive! I still have to make the tags and jar toppers and then ship several off. The majority will be hand delivered.
Lindas' Traditional Rum Balls
Make these Thanksgiving Weekend
Put in airtight containers and let them
do their thing until Christmas

1 cup Powdered Sugar
2 Tbl. Hershey Cocoa Powder
2 Tbl. Light Corn Syrup
1 Cup walnuts or pecans processed in food processor to fine crumbs
2 1/2 Nabisco Vanilla Wafers processed in food processor to fine crumbs
1/2 Cup Good Rum - This is your flavor so don't skimp
Mix all this together and roll into 1 inch balls that you roll in a bowl of powdered sugar

This batch makes about 40 1 inch balls 
I usually make 10 batches! They are always well received!!
My dad used to make these every year. I have given the recipe to my brothers 
and carried on the tradition and now here is my gift to you!
