Put evaporated milk, chocolate and syrup in saucepan. Cook over low heat until chocolate melts.

Remove from heat and add rum and 1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar.

Note ~ Measure the 1/2 cup powder sugar first and then sift.

Stir until smooth. Add Nilla wafer crumbs a little at a time. Let stand at room temperature until cool. (approx. 30 minutes)

Wet hands and shape in to 1 1/2" balls.

 Roll in powdered sugar.

Chill at least one hour in refrigerator.

  1. I was just thinking about these rum balls today -- and the last time I had them was when Joanna still lived in Sonterra. That's how good they are. Thanks for the recipe!!
