You ever get up very early (2 am) in the morning and don't want to read, watch TV, but want to do something creative. That was my morning today.

I thought to myself, well I'll make my Mom's recipe for Rum Balls. But wait, I thought to myself, I really don't like Rum or Bourbon or Brandy Balls. But everyone else does. There has to be away of making them so I like them too. So, this is what I came up with this morning.. 12/9/2012.

They are delicious! And I a tad doozy from tasting them. Hiccup :)

How to Make Rum, Bourbon or Brandy Balls

Step-by-Step

  • 1Place Cocoa, powder sugar, pound cake crumbs, butter, cinnamon extract, and spices in processor. Give them a good spin a couple of times so they are evenly distributed. Add the alcohol of your choice. Process till it forms a ball.

    Wrap and place in the refrigerator for a few minutes. I let the dogs out at this time and made a cup of tea.
  • 2Cover a cookie sheet with waxpaper or parchment paper.

    Form the balls, just about walnut size. I used a small cookie scoop. Roll balls between your hands. Place on cookie tin between layers of waxpaper When finished place in refrigerator.
