1 box vanilla wafer cookies
1 cup nuts (you can use any kind of nuts, my favorites are almonds & pecans)
2 tablespoon light corn syrup
1/4 cup rumchata (you can use ANY type of liquor - flavored vodka/rum, kahlua, bailey's, bourbon)
1/2 cup powdered sugar on a plate
Process cookies and nuts in a food processor until finely chopped. Empty food processor contents into a bowl and add corn syrup and rum. Mix together well with hands and roll into 1" balls. Roll in powdered sugar and set in a container.
PERFECT for cookie exchanges and Holiday gifts. Alcohol flavor will get stronger as they sit so it's best to make them the day before you're going to eat them/give them away.
