This is moist, delicious rum ball recipe I received from a former co-worker. It is great to have at Christmas...or even anytime!

These were very easy to eat and a great holiday treat! They are very rich (just what I expected), and oh so chocolatey!!! They didn't make 60 though, more like 30. Maybe I made them too big? Thanks for sharing!
