Rum Balls

1 pkg (11 oz) chocolate wafer cookies, finely crushed
1 1/2 cups finely chopped pecans
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/4 cup light or dark rum
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
In a large bowl, combine the crushed cookies and pecans; mix well. Stir in the corn syrup and rum until thoroughly combined. Place the confectioners' sugar in a shallow dish. Roll the cookie mixture into 1-inch balls. Roll in the confectioners' sugar until completely coated. Serve, or store in an airtight container at room temperature until ready to serve.
Yield: about 4 dozen

Note: These tend to absorb much of the confectioners' sugar right after coating, so be sure to coat them heavily. You might even want to coat them again just before serving.
