Rum Balls and Family News

Rum Balls, yum....Don't they look amazing? They are so delicious. The recipe is so simple but makes the most moist and flavorful bites of goodness. 

Rum Balls


11 ounce box of Vanilla Wafers, crushed 
1 cup chopped pecans (or walnuts, if you prefer)
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
14 ounce can of sweetened condensed milk
1/4 cup rum
powdered sugar for rolling

In a large bowl combine all the ingredients except powdered sugar. I used my Kitchen Aid mixer to mix well. 
Chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. I left mine a couple of hours.
Roll in to 1" balls and then roll in powdered sugar. 
Cover and store in the refrigerator overnight. The best flavor is after 24 hours. 
Yielded 36 but this photo is one short! ;)
Then enjoy!

The biggest family news of the holiday season:
