Chocolate Hazelnut Balls or Rum Ball Recipe

Merry Christmas with no bake Chocolate Hazelnut Balls ( if you have had Rum Balls, these are an adapted recipe using Italian Frangelico)....Buon Natale



If you like the taste of Chocolate and Hazelnut, these will be a big hit in your family as well.



A real change, after just making rum balls for many years, I thought adding another one to the list would be a great addtion...we now have two new favorite no bake cookies for our Christmas tray.







Since we are all big fans of this wonderful Italian hazelnut liqueur in our family, I had to adapt the rum ball recipe and make this hazelnut. Of course you can make these rum with walnuts if you prefer.. or make both like we do, great on any holiday tray quick and easy.

1 box vanilla wafers finely crushed
1 1/4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips melted
1 cup chopped hazelnuts or walnuts
1/2 cup Frangelico hazelnut liqueur or Rum
3 tbs. corn syrup
Put the vanilla wafers to powder in a food processor. Melt the chocolate chips (microwave ) Combine wafers, chocolate, hazelnuts, liqueur, and corn syrup; mix until blended. Form into bite-sized balls. Roll in powdered sugar, brushing excess sugar off for marbled look , dusty.
