Here is a rum ball recipe from the Bacardi Rum Party Book.  I've been
enjoying it for years.


1 1/2 cups vanilla wafer crumbs (about 50 cookies)
1/4 cup Bacardi dark rum 80 proof
1/4 cup honey
8 oz. (2 cups) ground walnuts
confectioner's (powder) sugar

Combine all ingredients, except sugar, blend thoroughly. Shape into
small balls about 1 inch in diameter.  Roll in sugar.  Store in tightly
covered container.  Makes about 2 1/2 dozen.

I keep them in the refrigerator if I'm storing them (they'll stay for
months).  I think they taste better after a few days when the ingredients
get to meld.  Food processor or rolling pin can be used to crush cookies.
