Rum Balls

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!

I made these rum balls a few days ago with my son’s leftover birthday cake. When my mom saw them, she said I used to ask her to buy me rum balls all the time when I was a kid. I was a huge fan then, still am now.

There’s something magical about rum balls. Somehow I feel happy after eating them and I’m sharing my happiness with you.

Here’s the recipe for rum balls, adapted from Aunty Yochana. Enjoy!
