I've had a few people email me wanting this recipe. So here ya go! Everytime mom and I make these, we double or triple the recipe at least. We make some for us, the neighbors, and people I work with.
1. 1 box vanilla wafers
2. 1 cup powered sugar
3. 4 tbsp light karo syrup
4. 1/2 cup rum or whiskey
5. 2 tbsp cocoa
6. 2 cup finely chopped pecans.
I usually buy the pecans in the baking aisle that are already packaged up finely chopped. It saves the mess of cracking pecans, shelling them, and chopping them. Super time saver. But you do have to crush up at the vanilla wafers. After the chop the pecans and crush the vanilla wafers, mix everything in the bowl together. It will be super super sticky. The easiet way to roll the mixture into small balls is to put some powered sugar on your hands so it doesn't stick to you as much. But roll them into small balls, and then roll around in powered sugar. Keep them in a air tight container.
Hope everyone enjoys them.
