Ingredients

  • 1 cup (250 mL) pecans, toasted
  • 2 cups (500 mL) lightly crushed vanilla wafer cookies
  • 3/4 cup (175 mL) icing sugar, divided
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) brown rice syrup
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) rum
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) vanilla extract

Method

  1. In food processor, combine pecans and vanilla wafer cookies. Pulse until finely chopped. Add 1/2 cup (125 mL) icing sugar, cocoa powder, brown rice syrup, rum and vanilla extract. Pulse about 1 min., or until thoroughly combined. Transfer cookie mixture to bowl.
  2. Roll 1 level tbsp (15 mL) portions of cookie mixture into balls. Place in wax paper-lined sealed container; chill 1 hr., or overnight. Roll balls in remaining icing sugar before serving.
