One of my co-workers always brings in the rum balls. I've always wanted to make them so I went on-line and found a recipe or several recipes I used and modified this one:

enjoy! I made a double batch and used coconut rum in one batch and spiced rum in the second batch then mixed the 2 batches together. Also I added a teaspoon of allspice to each batch, yummy!

1 (12 ounce) package vanilla wafers,
1 1/2 cups chopped nuts
3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
1/4 cup cocoa
1/2 cup light rum
3 tablespoons light corn syrup
1/8 cup confectioners' sugar
1. In a large bowl, combine vanilla wafer crumbs, chopped nuts, 3/4 cup confectioners' sugar, and cocoa. Mix in rum and corn syrup. Shape dough into 1 inch balls; roll in confectioners' sugar.
2. Store rum balls in an airtight container for 2 to 3 days to develop flavor. Roll them again in confectioners' sugar before serving.
