I have been sating around trying to figure out a new Holiday recipe. Being looking at cookies, cakes Holiday snacks, and eating KISSES. About the time I was to eat another KISSES, and looking at rum balls, I got to thinking --- UMMM, take one kisses and roll it up inside of a RUM BALL. SOOO, that's what I did. TRY it, you might like it!
