Our family loves this treat. It's definitely an adult treat, but you can also make it kid friendly.

Prep:

20 Min

Ingredients

2 1/2 c
crushed vanilla wafers (about 75 wafers)
1 c
ground pecans
1 c
confectioners' sugar
2 Tbsp
cocoa powder
2 tsp
cocoa powder
1/4 c
dark rum
3 Tbsp
honey
2 Tbsp
water
extra
crushed wafers and confectioners sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large mixing bowl, combine the wafer crumbs, pecans, confectioners sugar and cocoa (yes 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons. I don't know why the extra but it makes a BIG difference.)
2
Mix the rum, the honey, and water; stir into dry mixture. Mixture should be moist enough to form balls.
3
Shape into balls the size of small walnuts. Roll in extra confectioners sugar or extra wafer crumbs.
4
Store in airtight container. The longer they set, the better (and STRONGER) they get.


You can also cover them in your favorite chocolate covering. If you prefer a nonalcoholic recipe, substitute the rum with orange concentrate and a splash of rum extract.
