Another top-secret recipe from the family arsenal. Good thing no one really reads this blog or everything would be ruined that is good about the world. Anyway, if you are one of my four readers, enjoy these.
1 small box vanilla wafers, crushed (about 3c)
1 c walnuts, chopped
3T Light Karo Syrup
1 ½ T cocoa
½ t vanilla
¼ c powdered sugar
some rum or bourbon
and some more powdered sugar for rolling in (the cookies, not you)
Mix wafer crumbs, cocoa, walnuts and 1/4 c sugar, add Karo and vanilla. Drizzle in the liquor until the dough holds together enough to roll into 1” balls. If you go overboard (likely) just add more powdered sugar. Try not to scrape your hands clean with your teeth.
IMPORTANT: tell no one, otherwise they will disappear before you know it.
