December is the time of the year to indulge in making holiday cookies. Family recipes are often made from generation to generation, which makes those recipes special. But, every year try to add something new to your repertoire. This year you might want to try making rum balls as they are easy to make and quite tasty.
One special holiday treat is a rum ball, bite-sized confections made with chocolate and rum. But after that the recipe varies from country to country and family to family. This holiday cookie recipe has been in my family for many years. But, you must remember to make these balls at least 10-14 days before you want to serve them. It takes that amount of time for the rum flavor to dominate.
