I tried rolling these in confectioner's sugar and very finely ground nuts, and the result was rum balls rolled in confectioner's sugar, and a bowl of sugar coated nuts. The nuts did not stick! I only added nuts to half the dough, as my boyfriend does not like nuts. The ones with nuts were coated with confectioner's sugar, and I rolled the ones with no nuts in chocolate sprinkles (I tried it once with cocoa powder and did not like it at all). I have made these twice, and they were very good (though I will reduce the rum by a third and use water to make up the difference in the future -- they are very strong!). My boyfriend made them once, and they were awful, totally his fault, though. He did not grind the wafers finely enough, which resulted in a chunky, very tough cookie.
