Reindeer Poop (Rum Balls)
Makes about 4-5 dozen, depending on size.
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar plus extra for rolling them in
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 to 1 cup dark rum (Captain Morgan's Parrot Bay Coconut Rum also works pretty good here)
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 2 1/2 cups finely crushed vanilla wafers
  • 1 cup finely chopped, toasted walnuts
In large bowl, sift dry ingredients together. Pulverize the hell outta your vanilla wafers in a food processor or blender if you must. I usually toss the nuts in at the end and pulse once or twice just to chop them up pretty small. Add nuts and wafers to the bowl and mix up.

Add in your corn syrup and stir in about half a cup of rum. If your mix looks dry, stir in a bit more rum until it looks wet and is kinda sticky.

Take a pastry bag with a medium size tip (I just used a connector with no tip.) and load up with the mix. Squeeze out onto wax or parchment paper covered cookie sheet, either into the shape of little poop piles, or just little drops. The should be bite size.

Notice the runny ones in the background. Rudolph had deerarhea. *snicker* Sorry the picture's kinda shitty.  I make crappy jokes, don't I?

Slide them into the fridge for about an hour (freezer 15-20 minutes).

Roll the drops in extra powdered sugar or sift it on the little piles for a snowy look.

The drops you can serve room temp since they're completely covered in powdered sugar, but because the piles aren't, I'd reccomend serving them straight out of the fridge since they can get a bit sticky warm.


What's great about the piles, you can kind see the nuts and little hunks of vanilla wafer.
