I know tomorrow is actually National Cookie Day--not today--but oh well! Here's one of my favorite treats for the holiday season, and they're very easy.
1 6-ounce pkg (1 cup) semi-sweet chocolate chips
½ cup sugar
1/3 cup rum
3 tbl. light corn syrup
2 cups crushed Nilla wafers (44 wafers)
Melt chocolate over low heat. Remove. Stir in sugar, rum, and syrup. Fold in wafers (and, if wanted, you can add 1 cup ground walnuts, which gives this extra texture). Shape mixture into 1 inch balls. Roll in some sugar.
