3 1/2 cup vanilla wafer crumbs
1 1/2 cup confectioners sugar, divided
1 cup finely chopped pecans
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/3 cup light or dark rum
1/3 cup karo light corn syrup
1/3 cup fine chopped maraschino cherries
Mix vanilla wafer crumbs with 1 cup of the confectioners sugar, pecans and cocoa and cherries.
Stir in rum and corn syrup.
(I like to use a fork at this point to help in stirring the mixture) Shape into 1-inch balls. Roll balls on remaining sugar. Store in tightly covered container.
Refrigerate. Makes about 4 1/2 dozen.
Hint: Make them about a week before needed. Bring back to room
temperature before serving.
