This was my favorite goodies when I was teenager. The original recipe calls for Marie wafer which is already good to eat by itself so it rarely made it into rum balls.
3 packs of Marie wafers - crushed with blender
1/2 can sweetened condensed milk.
rum to flavor
confectioner sugar to coat
Mix all ingredients together.
Make balls. If dough is not sticky/thicken enough to form balls, add confectioner sugar.
Roll in confectioner sugar
note: You can add peanuts, almonds, pecans etc if you want.
If powdered sugar coated rum balls are to plain for you, you may dip them into candy coating to make more attractive designs.
These are the TWIST I make:
Substitute Marie wafer with any wafer cookies, or left over cake (crumb cake)
Substitute condensed milk with corn syrup.
