1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup white sugar
3 tablespoons corn syrup

Melt chocolate chips in a microwave safe dish. Heat for 1 minute to start off stir well, then heat in 30 second intervals, stirring in between and continue until smooth. Blend in sugar, corn syrup and rum. Mix in the crushed wafers and nuts and stir until those are evenly spread out through the mixture. Cover dish and refrigerate until it seems firm enough to shape. Roll into bite sized balls between the palms of your hands. Then roll the balls in powdered sugar. If you like more nuts you can roll them in a mixture of chopped nuts and sugar.
