Rum Balls

Rum Balls


Every now and then you need a grown up type of dessert.  Just a bite of something that mixes sweet and saucy.  Rum balls are that for me.  They are that one bite wonder that you can never eat just one of.  I am not someone who drinks rum, or at least very often.  There may be a couple of drinks I enjoy most likely with a little umbrella in them while I relax on the beach or poolside, but I am not likely to mix something up. However each time I have a rum ball or a rum cordial there is a taste or that little burn that I enjoy.  Maybe if there was a chocolate rum drink I would take the time to make it.

This recipe could not be easier and it is great for parties and get togethers.

All you need is stale brownies.  WHAT! I know what you are thinking who has stale brownies.  No one in their right mind, but the key is make a double batch of brownies.  That way you can enjoy some and have ample to make your rum balls ahead of time.
