these are good tasting and actually better when
made ahead and let sit to dry out in a covered
container a week or two before serving.

1/4 cup sunflower seeds, chopped
1/4 cup white granulated sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup corn syrup
1/2 cup Kahlu'a rum, and more
1 cup white sugar for rolling balls

Place in a mixing bowl the crushed cookies
along with cocoa, sunflower seeds, white sugar
brown sugar, corn syrup and Kahlu'a rum.
Mix to combine well to a thick batter.
At this time add in 1 tablespoon of flour.
Then while mixer is on pour in more Kahlu'a
until the batter is rolling consistancy.

large mixing bowl, set aside.

smoother and better looking rum balls. Place rolled balls a few at a time in sugar

baking sheet and cover to rest for 1 hour.
