In medium bowl, melt chocolate chips in microwave for about 2 minutes.
Stir in corn syrup, rum, crushed wafers, and ground nuts.
When mixture has cooled to room temperature, roll into 1-inch balls and then roll balls in granulated sugar to coat.
Store in airtight container. Makes approximately 75.
COLLINGSWORTH writes, “This recipe was handed down from my grandmother and is a favorite around the holidays. Some friends think they are potent with alcohol but our family thinks they are just right. If you are a nut lover, you can coarsely chop the nuts; but if you do not care for nuts, you can grind them up pretty finely and you won’t know they are there.”
