These were the last of the cookie balls I made. Still pretty damn good, but I don’t think the base recipe was quite as good as the pumpkin spice ones. Either way? More rum and chocolate is always a good thing. (I might need to make my own version of Jeni’s Rum Ball ice cream now. Because reasons. And science. Let’s get ready to rum ball, etc etc etc.)
Makes about 15 balls
- 1 12 oz box vanilla wafers, crushed
- 1 c powdered sugar
- 2 T cocoa powder
- 2 T corn syrup
- 2/3 c rum (I again used Bacardi Superior)
- white sugar (for rolling)
Again, for the vanilla wafers, if you’ve got a food processor, lucky you. Otherwise, again, just take a rolling pin, a bag, and your wafers, and go to town.
Combine your crushed wafers, powdered sugar, and cocoa powder, and then add the corn syrup, and after, very slowly, the rum, until you have a barely combined mix. You can do all of this with a food processor on pulse too, which, again, if you have it, bully for you. If you don’t, roll your sleeves up, take a rubber spatula, and go.
Take small chunks of your dough, roll them into small balls, and then toss in white sugar to coat. Chilling here is noted as optional, but it does make the flavor even better, in my opinion. Again, serve chilled or at room temp, as you prefer.
