[ Recipe: Mocha Rum Balls ] ~ from Monterey Bay Herb Co
mocha rum balls

The best thing about these deeply delicious rum balls is that they're a no-bake treat. Also…did we mention rum?

2 cups vanilla wafers, crushed
1 ½ cups powdered sugar, plus ¼ cup more
1 cup almonds, finely chopped
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
2 teaspoons instant coffee granules
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ cup dark rum
¼ cup strong black coffee

Combine the first 6 ingredients in a large bowl; stir to mix. Stir in the rum and coffee until well blended and the mixture comes together to form a dough. Pull small pieces of dough and shape into 1-inch balls. Roll balls in the remaining powdered sugar. Place on a baking tray lined with parchment paper to dry. Store in an airtight container.
