Oh yeah…we’ve got booze in all of its festive, cute-candy form, ready and waiting for us to look smart and classy as we get totally tipsy!  Is there anything better?~!  I think not!

Not only are these beautiful balls full of festive fun, they’re also a great way to use up any leftover Eggnog..just in case you have any said ‘leftover’ eggnog that is…?!

And fair warning…these balls aren’t subtle, they’re not shy…nope, these balls pack a punch and you will definitely know that they’re not for the weak from the very first nibble.  🙂

The eggnog gives them a smooth and creamy texture, while the hit from the Rum takes them to super high festive flavor levels.  They’re so easy to make and such a crowd pleaser!  Make a huge batch as a hostess gift, after dinner treat, or as a super fun and unique holiday coffee table treat!

~Package them up all cute-like, and give the gift of balls this holiday season!  🙂

What you’ll need:

2 cups crushed ‘nilla wafers

2 cups almonds..or any nut you prefer…finely chopped

2 cups powdered sugar

1/4 cup light corn syrup

1/4 cup Rum

1/4 cup Eggnog

1 tbsp. Nutmeg..optional

1/2 cup powdered sugar for rolling the balls

A food processor helps, but muscles will work too!

Directions:

Crush up the nilla wafers and the almonds until they’re super fine.

Pour in the corn syrup…

Now add in the eggnog…

And the RUM…

And now add the 2 cups of powdered sugar..Pulse until it’s able to stick together in your fingers.

Add the 1/2 cup of powdered sugar and nutmeg into a shallow bowl …

Scoop out approx. 1 tbsp. of the mixture and roll it tightly into balls, then roll them in the nutmeg/sugar mixture.  Set them on some wax paper to set up for a few seconds or so..lol…

Pile them up…

There’s plenty of balls to go around…

BUT..be sure to grab a ball or two for you!  ~Enjoy!  🙂

 Store any leftover balls in the fridge!
