Chocolate Rum Balls #CreativeCookieExchange
Today for you for Creative Cookie Exchange I am sharing a recipe for Chocolate Rum Balls. The theme this month is Drunken Cookies and hosted by Laura from The Spiced Life. These are decadent little cookies that can be shared at any time of the year. Great for an adult indulgence while the kiddies have sugar cookies!! This makes a nice light dessert too, when all you need is a little sumpin sumpin. Rich, decadent, alcohol infused, chocolate balls. They will hit the spot for many a reason!!
They are so easy to make, all done in a food processor and they are no bake. Roll them in your favorite cocoa, icing sugar, nuts, sprinkles or bits. I used icing sugar, cocoa and Hershey’s Toffee Bits.
- 2½ cups vanilla wafers or 250 gm.
- ½ cup pecans
- 2 Tbsp. cocoa
- 1 cup icing sugar
- ½ cup amber rum
- 1 Tbsp. Kahlua
- 2 Tbsp. while corn syrup
- Toppings, icing sugar, cocoa powder, toffee bits, nuts, jimmies, colored sugar.
- Place the vanilla wafers and pecans in a food processor, whirl until finely crushed. Add the icing sugar and cocoa and blend.
- In a small bowl mix together the rum, Kahlua and corn syrup. Pour into the food processor while it is running. Stop when it is all just mixed together.
- Roll into balls and dredge in your favorite topping. Store in a tin until ready to serve.
