These rum balls are mostly the exact recipe my Great Grandmother gave to my father. It differs slightly in that I use half milk chocolate chips, I added heavy cream to her recipe and I use a 12 year aged rum. Otherwise this recipe is the exact way my Great Grandmother use to make them for Holiday parties! I really hope you enjoy this family Holiday Party treat!

Ingredients:
6 oz Nilla wafers
1/2 cup classic semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
1 tbsp heavy cream
1/3 cup aged dark rum
1/4 cup powdered sugar

In a medium mixing bowl crush Nilla wafers either with a potato masher or by pulsing them in a food processor. Using a fork slowly mix in rum until Nilla wafers are evenly moist.

In a small sauce pan heat chocolate over low heat until chips have melted, about 5-7 minutes. Whisk in heavy cream until smooth and then pour over Nilla mixture. By hand knead mixture in bowl until mixed well. Separate mixture into 12 even sized balls.

Spread powdered sugar around in a small bowl. Roll balls one at a time in hands until smooth and then roll each one in the powdered sugar coated. Place balls as you finish them onto a nonstick cookie sheet. Once all of the balls are finished cover them with plastic wrap and freeze or chill in fridge until hardened (30-45 minutes.) Once hardened enjoy!
