I made a couple of batches of rum balls the other night. I am not really sure how they will turn out. Here is the recipe I followed.
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup white sugar
3 tablespoons corn syrup
1/2 cup rum
2 1/2 cups crushed vanilla wafers
I am just really worried about the texture. The dough was very dry and crumbly. I followed the measurements above to the exact. The heat from my hands made it workable, but it still felt dry.
Also I don't care for c. sugar. One batch I rolled in crushed oreo (cream removed) and the other I tried to roll in coconut, (that failed, it would not stick at all) so I ended up using grainulated sugar.
The are still *curing* so I am not really sure how they will taste, or (truefully) how rum balls are supposed to taste. What should I look for? What makes a good rum ball? I wanted to give these on cookie trays, but don't want to be embarrassed if they are not good.
