Rum Balls…Mmmm

Haven’t made these in a long, long time. My recipe dates back to the forties. Might be just what you’d like to try. Let me know how it works out for you.

1/2 lb. Vanilla Wafers

1 Cup pwd. Sugar

2 TBLSP Cocoa

1 Cup finely chopped nuts (preferably pecans)

1/2 Cup Light Corn Syrup

1/4 Cup Rum

DIRECTIONS

Roll wafers into very fine crumbs. Mix with cup of pwd. sugar & cocoa. Add chopped nuts, syrup, and rum. Stir until blended with a stiff texture. Shape into 1 inch balls. Let stand 1 hour and roll in pwd. sugar and put nut on top. Put sugar on hands when shaping balls. Keep in tightly closed can for three days before using.

The future is right ahead of me. At the age of 84, all new projects are interesting.Memories and friends of the past are with me every day. I love to share my thoughts along with comments and opinions (of course) of this day and today's times and challenges. Photography is my hobby. Although I haven't done many photos of people, I've found there are photo challenges in every direction. Born and raised in Michigan, the peaceful woods and wildlife have always attracted me. Graduating from high school in 1953, college was of no interest to me. My Dad used to say, "some folks get a college education and may still not have enough sense to come in out of the rain." That's always been enough for me because I do, have that much sense, about the rain. I have learned one important fact about life. Old isn't as old as I always thought it was.
