    Midnight Rum Balls

    Midnight Rum Balls



    I made these rum balls several years ago and gave them away as gifts for Christmas. I'm planning on making them again this year because they are REALLY good!!

    Midnight Rum Balls
    (adapted from a recipe found on Chowhound.com)

    ingredients:
    Oreo Cookies (or any other type of chocolate sandwich cookie)-about 24 of these
    1/2 cup powdered sugar
    1 cup finely chopped walnuts (optional)
    3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
    2 tablespoons corn syrup
    1/3 cup rum (can substitute with whiskey if you'd like)
    Extra fine granulated sugar to roll the balls in
    Crushed peppermint to roll balls in (optional of course)!


    directions:
    1. Crush the cookies until they are fine crumbs (best to use a food processor for this)
    2. In a medium bowl, combine the cookies with the powdered sugar, walnuts if using, and cocoa powder and mix.
    3. Next, add the corn syrup and the rum and stir ingredients until combined.
    4. Using wet hands (because the dough is very sticky), make 1 inch balls and then roll into the granulated sugar, and if you'd like, roll them in crushed peppermint sticks for that holiday look.
    5. Store the rum balls in a tight-fitting container; remember, rum balls actually taste better and better a day or two after making them.
