2 tablespoons light corn syrup
¼ cup dark rum

Combine crushed ginger snaps, 1 cup powdered sugar, walnuts and cocoa powder. Add corn syrup and rum and mix well. With dampened hands, shape into 1-inch balls. Roll in granulated or powdered sugar.
Pack loosely in tin, separating layers with wax paper. Cover tightly and store at least 24 hours for best flavor.
