These freeze REALLY well. I like to make them a month or so before Christmas so if an unexpected party comes up or I need a last minute gift, they are ready to go. They also ship really well.

This is a great way to use up left over cake. I used some cake I had already made and more rum. I forgot to add the cocoa, but the cake I used was very chocolaty so didn't notice. Thanks :)
