The holiday season is never complete without rum balls. This year we decided to modify the classic recipe with honey. The balls need to set a bit but an early sample seems successful!
Here is the recipe we used.
1 box finely crushed Vanilla wafers (11 oz box)
2 ½ cups powdered sugar
1 cup finely chopped pecans or about 4 oz (toasted)
¼ cup of cocoa
½ cup rum
¼ cup honey
Use a food processor to finely crush wafers and pecans. Crush pecans and wafers separately to visually control the crushing process in order to get a uniform product. Combine and mix well wafers, pecans, powdered sugar, and cocoa powder, then add honey and rum. Shape into 1-inch balls. Roll some in each of your favorite of granulated sugar, cocoa powder, and powdered sugar. Refrigerate in a tightly covered container for several days to set.
