Rum Balls

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
cocoa powder

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.

Reviewer: Anonymous from Cambridge Ont. Canada
this recipe was pretty easy to prepare(except for grinding the 2 cups of chocolate needed).the amount of booze you use will probably have to be almost doubled because when i put in the 4 Tbsp.of booze as shown in the recipe,the mix turned into tiny little balls until i put in the extra rum which then caused it to turn into the stiff slightly sticky dough. be careful not to let them sit out after you finish making them because they will start to dry out a bit, try packing them away in plastic.
