This is my answer to the holiday sweet treat Rum Balls. Instead of using Rum I used Jack Daniels. These easy as all get out balls were made with prepackaged brownie mix and some extra goodness. These are not just for the holidays, they make an awesome adult snack anytime of the year. These will go fast so make many! Cooking with Passion, sw :)
