Irish Creme Holiday Balls

Of course these are the same recipe as the traditional style rum balls which is still an old time favorite..  these are a great addition for a change.. also try Kahlua~
Irish Creme Balls

1 package vanilla wafers
3/4 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4-1/2 cups Irish Creme (click here for an Irish Homemade Cream Recipe!)
3 Tablespoons light corn syrup
1/2-1 cup crushed hazelnuts

 Crush wafers and hazelnuts in food processor (or in a bag using a rolling pin till fine). Add sugar and cocoa; mix well.
Blend in corn syrup and Irish cream. Cover and chill dough for an hour or overnight.
 Cover hands in powdered sugar and roll into 1-inch balls.
Store in air-tight container in the refrigerator for 2-3 days or make ahead and freeze them.
 Roll in powdered sugar or sprinkles before serving.
Somehow I think these two got into the liqueur cabinet!
Happy Holidays from Fonzo and Trina~
