      Title: Rum/bourbon balls
 Categories: Desserts, Usenet
      Yield: 2 Dozen
 
      3 c  Vanilla Wafers
           -(crushed)
      1 c  Sugar, powered
  1 1/2 c  Nuts, chopped
  1 1/2 t  Cocoa powder
      2 T  Corn syrup, white
           -(honey also works well)
    1/2 c  Rum or Bourbon
 
  Mix all dry ingredients and set aside.
  
  Mix corn syrup or honey with rum or bourbon to thin the syrup.  Blend
  wet mixture into dry ingredients with fork.  Mix well.  Allow to sit
  for 1-2 hours.
  
  At this point, if you let it sit a couple of hours, you can come
  back and add another about 1/2 cup of rum or bourbon and let sit
  again. This process may be repeated a few times to your taste. The
  last time, the mix should sit a couple of hours so it's not really
  moist. There's a good midpoint between too moist and too dry where
  rolling into balls won't be difficult (too wet) or cause crumbling
  (too dry).
  
  Roll into balls, then roll in powered sugar to make a sugar coating.
  When rolling in powered sugar, the moister they are, the more sugar
  will be absorbed over time.  They may need another roll in the sugar
  right before serving.
  
  NOTES:
  
  *  Intoxicating chocolate snack with rum or bourbon -- I got this
  from my mom who uses more alcohol than the original recipe called for
  but less than I like to use. It makes a great party snack. Yield:
  Makes about 30 small balls.
  
  : Difficulty:  easy to moderate.
  : Time:  1/2 to 1 hour preparation; 3 or more hours waiting.
  : Precision:  approximate measurement OK.
