The holidays are quickly approaching. This week, I am sharing two recipes that are great for holiday parties. One is a dessert and one is an appetizer.

1 box (10-12 ounces) Vanilla Wafers

2 tablespoons Cocoa Powder

1 cup Powdered Sugar

1 cup Walnuts or Pecans, finely chopped

2 tablespoons light Corn Syrup

1/2 cup Rum or Brandy

Extra Powdered Sugar for rolling

Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl and mix well. Form into 1-inch balls and roll un the powdered sugar. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.


Good Cooking, Good Eating and Good Living!!!


I lived in New Orleans, since birth, until Hurricane Katrina. I now live in Arkansas with my wife and our spoiled-rotten dog. I have been cooking since I was 8. My first cookbook, You can't keep New Orleans out of the cook, is now available at and most online bookstores. It is also available on Kindle and Nook.
