Recipe by Andrea-Oz

This is my Mother's chocolate rum ball recipe. I used to wait all year for Xmas just to eat these. Since I've grown up, my friends and family now wait all year for me to make them. Co-workers love them too. I've never put rum in them, but have added some peppermint schnapps for something different. Best if they can sit in the fridge for at least a night.
