Chocolate Fig Bon Bons

8 oz. dried figs, stems removed
2/3 cup toasted hazelnuts
8 crushed vanilla wafer cookies
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup rum
3 oz. semi sweet chocolate

Vegetable Oil

Process figs, hazelnuts and vanilla wafers in a food processor until finely ground.
Add powdered sugar, run and orange peel, process until well mixed. Dampen hands
and shape mixture into balls.  Arrange close together on a baking sheet or wire rack.
In a small, deep, microwaveable bowl, heat chocolate on high, one to two minutes.
Stir once every minute.  Add a few drops of vegetable oil if needed to thin out chocolate
enough to drizzle.  Dip the tips of a fork in the chocolate and quickly drizzle over the fig
balls.  Refrigerate until chocolate is set.  Store in an airtight container up to 1 week.
