Melt the chocolate and stir in the rum and golden syrup.
Stir together the biscuit crumbs, pecans and 1/2 of the icing sugar. Drizzle the chocolate mixture over the crumb mixture and stir until blended.
Shape mixture into 2.5cm balls. Roll balls in the remaining icing sugar. Place cherry half in centre of each ball, pressing down lightly. Store in an airtight container for several days to develop flavour.
