Rum Balls

Did you just get invited to a party and have no idea what to bring?

My niece, Tiffany, just gave me this recipe for no-cook Rum Balls. This is an old family recipe of hers that she has tweaked. It is quick and easy--the toughest part is grinding the Gingersnap cookies!

Gather all your ingredients together. Tiff likes to use fancy rum (can I call Alcohol Abuse?) and Fireball, for some added cinnamon-y flavor. But Spiced Rum works great! Grind up the Gingersnaps and nuts and put the dry ingredients into a large

mixing bowl.

Then mix the rum and Karo in a glass measuring cup and slowly drizzle over the dry ingredients, mixing a bit at a time into the crumb mixture.

Once the liquid is well incorporated into the mixture, begin making balls about the size of walnuts.

Roll each ball in powdered sugar. Your hands

will get sticky, so just keep lots of powdered sugar on them.

Let the balls sit on waxed paper for about 30 minutes and then pack them into an airtight container until you are ready to eat them. Yumm!
