Traditional Italian Rum Balls Valentine Heart Recipe

Wednesday, February 12, 2014
An easy cookie that every Rum lover loves! Why not shape these into pretty hearts for your special someone. A perfect treat to celebrate the night with that special someone! 
Rum Ball Cookies

3 tablespoons corn syrup
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup rum
1 box vanilla wafers crushed in food processor fine
1 1/2 cups nuts
More powdered sugar for rolling
Place everything in a bowl and mix until well combined. Shape into hearts. Roll into powdered sugar. I keep them refrigerated.  These look great in a glass mug with candied hearts for a gift. Wrap in cellophane paper and tie with a red bow.

Store in an airtight container.
