I made these Dollops for our Easter Egg Hunt this year and they were a tasty hit.  This variation of "Rum Ball" Incorporated ideas based off of the cookies that are always brought back to us from Hawaii.  I hope you enjoy!

Ingredients:
6 oz Nilla wafers
1 cup classic semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 tbsp heavy cream
1/3 cup aged dark rum
1/4 cup Macadamia Nuts
1/3 cup sweetened coconut flakes
In a medium mixing bowl crush Nilla wafers with a potato masher (or pulse them in a food processor before adding to bowl.) 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 and even. Separate mixture into 16-18 evenly sized balls and then press each ball flat into a cookie shape.

Spread cocunt flakes around in a small bowl. Press each side of dollops down into cocunt flakes, then place them onto a nonstick cookie sheet and finally press a macadamia nut into the center of each. Once all of the dollops are finished cover them with plastic wrap and freeze or chill in fridge until hardened (30-45 minutes.) Once hardened enjoy!
