Espresso Rum Balls

For the Rum balls
3 cups of vanilla wafers, chopped (about one package)
1/2 cup of chopped nuts (walnuts, or pecans)
1/3 cup of light or dark rum
2 shots of espresso
3 tablespoons of honey
11/2 tablespoons of cocoa powder

For the coating
3 plastic ziploc bags - sandwich size, or something similar.

First Bag
3/4 cup of powdered sugar

Second Bag
3/4 cup of powdered sugar
1 tablespoon of cocoa powder

Third Bag
3/4 cup of chopped nuts

Put the vanilla wafers in a food processor. Make sure that they are finely chopped, if there are large pieces, you will end up with lumpy rum balls.

Put the walnuts in the food processor. Chop these to a fine chop also. Make sure to separate some of the walnuts for the coating.

Combine the chopped wafers, chopped walnuts, espresso, rum, honey and cocoa powder into a large bowl. Mix thoroughly.

Wash your hands well before beginning. Place a small amount of the batter in your palm and roll it into a ball shape. These rum balls are very rich, so make sure that you make the balls very small. Place a ball into one of the three ziploc bags that you have prepared for the coating. Zip the bag shut and shake the bag so that the rum ball is thoroughly coated. Remove the rum ball and set aside.

Place the coated rum balls on an ungreased cookie sheet covered with a sheet of wax paper. Let the rum balls breath for at least an hour before attempting to store/package them. The rum balls will mellow over the course of the next few days. They do not need to be refrigerated, but they must be stored in an airtight container. If refrigerated, the coating may need to be reapplied.
