Recipe by Jacquie

From Taste of Home Magazine. Men seem to really like these. I used Malibu Rum and Ghirardelli chocolate.

Whoo, these are boozy little suckers! Delicious, but no denying the rum in these, that's for sure! I used Malibu Coconut rum and Scharffen-Berger bittersweet squares. I thought at first that maybe I should double the recipe, because it doesn't look like it makes very much. In hindsight, I'm glad that I didn't, because small doses satisfy here. These would make a nice Valentine's day gift, wrapped up in some pretty packaging. DH has commandeered the bulk of the first batch I made, but I think I'll make another batch for Dad, cuz I suspect he'd like them just as much as DH did. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Spring 2014
