Rum Balls

I had planned to make these awhile ago, but when drama unfolded around here they were pushed to the back burner. Not needing as much as originally, I halved the recipe-which worked really well! They are chocolatey, rummy, and oh SO delicious. From now on, I think these are going to be one of my Christmas must have recipes.

Recipe originally from Canadian Living. Don't ask me what issue, I have no idea.
4 oz semi sweet chocolate, coarsely chopped (bittersweet might be even better)
1 pkg (200g) chocolate wafer cookies
1 cups finely chopped walnuts or pecans
3 tbsp sweetened condensed milk
1/3 cup rum
1 tsp vanilla
chocolate sprinkles

Melt semi sweet chocolate in a bowl over hot, not boiling, water until melted. Set aside and let cool. Whiz chocolate wafers in a food processor to make 2 1/3 cups (actually, you could probably just purchase already crushed Oreo cookie crumbs); transfer to a large bowl. Add 1 cup nuts, condensed milk, run, and vanilla; stir in chocolate. Chill, covered, for 1 hour or until firm.

Shape mixture by teaspoons into balls and roll in chocolate sprinkles to coat. Chill in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks. If you must, drink the leftover rum.

Makes 70. Unless you scarf them down when nobody's looking.
