Christmas Rum Balls , Two Versions

Another recipe from my mother's collection. I like the simplicity of this recipe. We'll make these for Thanksgiving or Christmas.

1 1/2 C Coconut
4 C Crushed Vanilla Wafers
1 1/2 C Chopped Pecans
Place in a large mixing bowl and mix well.

Add 1 C Sweetened Condensed Milk
1/2 C Rum
Mix well.
Use a cookie 1 1/2" Cookie Scoop to form each cookie. Roll in the palm of your hand.
Roll in Confectioner's Sugar, cover and refrigerate.
Roll in Sugar again just prior to serving.

Peace in the Kitchen!

This one packs a punch ...... Oh, why not!
I would also make these with Irish Whiskey or Rum.
Make at least a week in advance so the Irish Whiskey has a chance to...... mellow!
They're No Bake so they are less time consuming.

3 C crushed Vanilla Wafers.
1 C finely chopped Pecans ...... roasted if you prefer and have the time.
1 C Powdered Sugar
1 1/2 TBS Cocoa Powder .... You know what I say about the Cocoa Powder, don't skimp on this ingredient, nothing but the best. I now use Hershey's Special Dark.
2 TBS Corn Syrup  ( sorry about this one, but it's necessary)
1/2 C Irish Whiskey ... again, the best you can afford.
Powdered Sugar for rolling the cookies at the end.

Combine, in a medium bowl:
Powdered Sugar
Cocoa Powder

Stir in the Corn Syrup and Irish Whiskey
Use a small cookie scoop to form 1" balls.
Roll them in Powdered Sugar

Peace in the Kitchen!
