INGREDIENTS
  • 2 cups finely ground cake scraps or cookies
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 cup powdered sugar, sifted, plus extra for rolling
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup finely chopped pecans or walnuts, optional
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 cup dark rum
PREPARATION

 

In a mixing bowl fitted with the paddle attachment, or by hand, mix together the cake

scraps, cocoa powder, powdered sugar, vanilla and nuts.

 

Stir in the 2 tablespoons of honey and the rum. Using your hands, try to form the

mixture into a ball. If the mixture won't hold together, add a little more honey.

 

Roll the mixture into 1-inch balls, then roll them in powdered sugar. Let them sit for

about 24 hours.
