LOOKING for: Vintage Nila wafer candy ball recipe

This is a long shot, but here goes! I am trying to find the original recipe that I found on a Nila Vanilla wafers box, some 25 years ago. I cut it out of the cardboard box and placed it in my recipe box. I never found it again.

It went something like this. Crushed Nila wafers, down to a powder form. The recipe called for hard candy balls, like you buy in bulk. You would create a rolling dough from the wafers that you crushed, after you put the candy in the center, you rolled it into a ball, and if my memory serves me right, it the ball was rolled in those colored sprinkles.

I have tried online but can't recall what the recipe was actually called.

Do you mean Rum Balls

Brandy or Rum Balls

1 (5 ounce) can evaporated milk
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup brandy
1 (16 ounce) package vanilla wafers, crushed very fine
2 cups finely chopped walnuts
1 cup confectioners' sugar for rolling

In the microwave or in a metal bowl over a pan of simmering water, melt evaporated milk and chocolate chips, stirring frequently until smooth. Remove from heat and stir in the crushed vanilla wafers and brandy until well blended. Roll the dough into small balls and roll the balls in chopped walnuts, then in confectioners' sugar. Store covered in the refrigerator.

There's a lot of recipes out there. Enjoy
