"I've tried several recipes I found online, and the mixture always comes out too wet to form balls. My grandmother used to make these, and I finally figured out my own recipe that's as close to hers as I could get."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 (12 ounce) package
vanilla wafer cookies
unsweetened cocoa powder
light corn syrup
flaked coconut, or to taste
confectioners' sugar, or to taste, for rolling
This is a great recipe. A holiday staple in our house for as long as I remember. My mom made these with Brandy. I prefer using bourbon. I have also used a combination of dark and coconut rum, or white cream de menth. They all are great. Then you can roll in confectioners sugar, ground nuts, cocoa powder... Endless possibilities!
