Contributed by Diane S.

Makes 3 dozen (or more if you roll them smaller)

2 1/2 cups finely crushed vanilla wafer cookies
1 teaspoon rum flavoring
1 cup powdered (confectioners) sugar
2 tablespoons powdered cocoa
1/4 cup rum (don't use a cheap brand)
1 cup finely chopped nuts (walnuts or pecans are best)
3 tablespoons light corn syrup

Mix together vanilla wafers, powdered sugar, nuts and cocoa.  Add
light corn syrup and rum.  Mix well with hands and roll into 1 inch balls.
Roll in powdered (confectioner) sugar.  NOTE: If mixture feels a little
dry, add more rum, a little at a time.

These also make a great (last minute too!) gift.  Just put some in
a decorative tin or a cellophane gift bag!
