Chocolate Rum Balls

Here's something interesting to do with all that fruitcake we get at Christmas time...

Chocolate Walnut Rum Balls

1 lb. fruitcake, sliced and cut into 2-inch pieces
2 cups (8 ounces) walnut pieces
3 cups confectioners' sugar, divided
2 bars (1.5 ounces each) dark chocolate, chopped(I used Godiva
1 /4 cup rum

Place fruitcake and nuts in bowl of food processor fitted with metal chopping blade. Cover and pulse until mixture is very finely chopped. Transfer to mixing bowl.

Add 2 cups confectioners' sugar and chocolate. Mix well with fork. Add rum and mix until ingredients are uniformly moistened. Add a little more rum, if needed, to hold ingredients together.

Line baking sheet with waxed paper. Shape fruitcake mixture into 1-inch balls by rolling between palms of hands. Repeat to make about 50 balls. Place remaining confectioners’ sugar in shallow bowl. Roll balls in sugar until thoroughly coated. Transfer to waxed paper-lined baking sheet and let stand at room temperature for 1 hour. Store rum balls in covered container for up to 3 days. Makes 50 rum balls.
