Rum Balls

Rum Balls
These are coated in powdered sugar but dark cocoa is just as yummy!
With the holidays in mind I will share my mother's tried and true recipe for the most wonderful sweets that you don't have to bake, heat or otherwise have any culinary skill to create. Right up my alley!

2 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 cups crunched oreo cookies
1 cup powdered sugar*
1/8 tsp salt
1 cup chopped nuts (walnuts or pecans)
1.5 Tbsp honey or syrup
1/2 cup rum

*Set aside a bit more powdered sugar or powdered cocoa to coat the rum balls. Just roll 'em around in it.*

Mix all ingredients together except the rum in a bowl with your hands. Gradually add rum, mixing until the ingredients hold together. Then just add rum a few more drops at a time. Roll into 1 inch balls then roll in powdered sugar or powdered cocoa. Set on waxed paper and cover inside a lidded box. Store at room temperature. Even a shoe box will do if you don't have an airtight box. The rum evaporates quicker if it's not airtight. Uh-oh!
