Holiday Rum Balls Recipe with Honey

Holiday Honey Rum Balls

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 wafer 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, cocoa powder and then add honey and rum. Shape into 1-inch balls. Roll some in each of your favorite of granulated sugar, cocoa powder, powdered sugar. Refrigerate in a tightly covered container for several days to set.
