1 c walnuts, ground or finely chopped
2 c grated German sweet or bittersweet chocolate
1 1/2 c. sifted confectioner's sugar
1 to 4 Tbsp. rum
Combine nuts, sugar, and chocolate. Moisten with rum to form a
stiff dough. Form into small balls and roll in cocoa to coat.
This recipe is not only simple, it's flexible. It can be made with
other kinds of liquor (amaretto, sherry, and Southern Comfort work
well), nuts (almonds or pecans, for instance) and coatings (ground
nuts, finely grated coconut, etc.) and always comes out tasting
great. Adding small chunks of nut for texture is also effective.
These usually disappear in a hurry.
