    Marg (CaymanDesigns)'s Note:

    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 :)

      Kids loved these, adults were a little iffy and most gave them a thumbs down. I did not go overboard on the rum, just 2 tablespoons of Bacardi since I knew Kids would be eating them. They popped them like Dunkin's doughnut holes.

      These were so easy and great tasting! I crumbled the cake in the same pan it was baked in while it was still warm, and that cooled it faster. I tripled the rum, as I like a stronger flavor, and they taste great, and I know they'll be even better after sitting a couple days. A word of advice to anyone looking to make these: be sure to chop the nuts fine enough or they won't stay in the mixture, I made this mistake.
