NO-BAKE TIPSY COOKIE BALLS

about 2½ dozen cookies

 

Well I had a special request from Eric, one of the directors at WRIC-TV, I hope you will enjoy the No-Bake Tipsy Cookie Balls.  They also can be prepared without any liqueur in them.

 

  • 3 cups chocolate or vanilla or cookie or graham cracker crumbs
  • ¾ cup miniature semi-sweet or milk chocolate pieces (optional)
  • ¾ cup finely chopped pecans or English walnuts or cashews (optional)
  • ½ cup dark rum or brandy or orange juice (see note)
  • 4½ tablespoons light corn syrup
  • Sifted confectioners' sugar or granulate sugar as needed (optional)

 

In a large bowl, combine cookie or graham cracker crumbs, semi-sweet or milk chocolate pieces of choice, nuts of choice, if used, rum or orange juice (if using orange juice, add ¼ to ½ teaspoon orange extract to mixture), and corn syrup, mixing well to form a stiff dough.  Shape mixture into1-inch diameter balls.  Loosely cover with wax paper and refrigerate 1 hour.

 

Roll each cookie ball in confectioners' or granulated sugar, coating each well.

 

Store cookies in an air-tight container in a cool area or in the refrigerator.

 

Variation:  May add ½ teaspoon vanilla extract, if desired.
