Candy is dandy but....

It's time for a serious talk. Just between you and me. I have never made this recipe. I don't even know where I originally found it. The magazine clipping is taped to an index card, and that card is showing its age. But it sounds so good, and easy, and I think it would be a wonderful thing to make for your sweetheart. Would one of you give it a try and let me know if it's a "keeper"?

Kahlua Cocoa Balls
1/2 cup Kahlua
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1/3 cup chopped candied cherries
1/3 cup chopped golden raisins
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 1/2 cups fine vanillla wafer crumbs
1 cup finely chopped pecans
Powdered sugar, cocoa powder, coconut or ground nuts for decoration

Combine Kahlua with syrup and fruits. Blend sugar, cocoa, crumbs, and pecans. Combine mixtures. Shape into small balls. Roll in desired coating. Freeze or store in an airtight container. Makes 4 dozen.
