You may use bourbon instead of rum if you wish.
3 Cups Finely Crushed Vanilla Wafers
1 Cup Finely Chopped Pecans
1 Cup Powdered Sugar – Divided
1 Cup Semi-Sweet Morsels
½ Cup Light Corn Syrup
1/3 Cup Rum or Bourbon
In a medium mixing bowl combine crushed wafers, pecans and ½ cup powdered sugar and set aside. In a double boiler (over simmering water) melt chocolate morsels with corn syrup. Add rum or bourbon and stir until smooth. Pour chocolate mixture over wafer mixture. Stir to combine thoroughly. Shape mixture into 1 inch balls and place on waxed paper.
Place remaining powdered sugar in a shallow bowl and roll balls in sugar. Store in an airtight container between layers of waxed paper. Makes approximately 4 dozen.
