Made with ground pecan, cookie crumbs, and of course rum, the flavor of these No-Bake Classic Rum Ball Cookies are classic for a reason!
In a large bowl combine the cookie crumbs, 1 cup (5oz/142g) pecans (preferably toasted), powdered sugar, cocoa, maple syrup, and rum.
Mix until a sticky dough forms. At this point chill the cookie mixture for about 2 hours.
Once chilled, scoop the cookie mixture into balls. Using a tablespoon measure, scoop a level tablespoon of the mix then roll into a ball. Repeat the process until all of the balls are rolled.
Once all of the balls have been rolled coat each one in the remaining 1/2 cup (2 ½oz/71g) pecans.
Cover and store in an airtight container for up to 10 days.
*Vanilla wafers: Feel free to use any plain cookie or biscuit (e.g./ rich tea, NICE biscuits etc)
