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 and new projects seem to beckon... Friends and memories of times past remain with me today. I love to share my stories along with comments and opinions (of course) of today's challenges. Photography is my hobby and opportunities to capture the scenes before me are mine for the taking. Born and raised in Michigan, the peaceful woods and wildlife trails have always attracted me. Graduating from high school in the early fifties, college was of no interest to me. I have learned one important fact about life; whover decided when a person becomes "old"...didn't know what they were talking about...My theory is; you're as old as you think you are....(I'm thinking about it..haven't decided yet.)
