Here's a recipe for rum balls that I got from Monica Fischler in Guayaquil,
Ecuador in 1974. It's very simple, requires no cooking, and is almost
impossible to foul up.

Combine nuts, sugar, and chocolate. Moisten with rum to form a stiff dough.
Form into small balls and roll in cocoa to coat.

This recipe is not only simple, it's flexible. It can be made with other
kinds of liquor (amaretto, sherry, and Southern Comfort work well), nuts
(almonds or pecans, for instance) and coatings (ground nuts, finely grated
coconut, etc.) and always comes out tasting great. Adding small chunks of
nut for texture is also effective. These usually disappear in a hurry.
