Rum Bites – Make a few dozen for your next party
Today I am sharing my easy recipe for Chocolate Rum Bites and I think you will love them
You may want to take Note: Make plenty because these will not last long. After the first bite, one is not enough.
This recipe uses 1 box of vanilla wafers
Using a large mixing bowl, crush until a fine mixture
Add all other ingredients except rum and mix well.
Adding the good stuff
Add the rum and stir well until it forms into a dough like concoction.
Roll the dough
Roll mixture into 1 inch balls.
Roll into confectioners sugar and coat well.
All done….store in a well-sealed container. If needed you can re-coat with powdered sugar
CHOCOLATE RUM BITES
- 1 – 12 oz. box vanilla wafers crushed
- 3/4 - cup confectioners' sugar
- 1/4 - cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 & 1/2 - cup chopped walnuts Optional
- 3 - tablespoons light corn syrup
- 1/2 - cup to ¾ cup rum or bourbon – depends on your desired taste
- In a large bowl, stir together the crushed vanilla wafers, 3/4 cup confectioners' sugar, cocoa, and nuts. Blend in corn syrup and rum.
- Shape into 1 inch balls, and roll in additional confectioners' sugar.
- Store in an airtight container for several days to develop the flavor.
- Roll again in confectioners' sugar before serving.
I make mine with a little more rum, but if you have not made or tasted Rum Bites I would recommend starting with a ½ cup of the alcohol until you find your desired taste.
I usually make this recipe without nuts, but you can all nuts if your family likes them. Be sure to chop nuts very finely.
I hope you are enjoying your Holiday Season.
