These little rum balls sure have a little bit of a kick! I contemplated putting them in the adult beverage category! I'm sure if you ate enough of them, you could catch a little buzz. They are rich and so chocolaty. I really like the flavor they have and they are super fast to make! They would be a great addition to any holiday gathering!
