Then look no further and try this no-bake goodness that you can prepare in just a few minutes, perfect for those in a hurry or who will be too busy preparing other foods. Of course, this clever recipe is by the ever-so-amazing Preppy Kitchen via YouTube. Without further ado, let’s head on to the procedure.



  • 1 cup Confectioners’ sugar
  • ¼ cup Confectioners’ sugar (for rolling)
  • tbsp. Cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup Cocoa powder (for rolling)
  • 1/3 cup Dark rum
  • tbsp. Honey
  • ½ tsp Sea salt
  • 2 cups Vanilla wafers, finely crushed
  • ¼ cup Vanilla wafers, finely crushed (for rolling)
  • 1 cup Pecans, toasted, finely chopped


Step 1

If you don’t have toasted pecans ready, you can pre-toast them at 350°F for 10 minutes (move the pecans around halfway), then set aside and let them cool. Put the wafers in the food processor and pulse until crushed, then transfer to a bowl. Put the toasted pecans on the food processor as well, then pulse until they are finely chopped, then transfer to the same bowl as the wafers, reserve about ¼ cup for rolling.


Step 2

Get the bowl of processed wafer and pecan, then sift powdered sugar, salt, and cocoa onto it. Whisk them until well-combined. In a separate bowl, combine the rum and honey until the latter is completely dissolved. Pour the rum mixture onto the dry ingredients and combine with a spatula, add more rum as needed.
