12 Weeks of Christmas Cookies… rum balls

During my high school and college years, we had a neighbor named Mrs. D.  Mrs. D made all kinds of wonderful treats for us and one of them was rum balls every holiday season.  It’s been a few years since I have had Mrs. D’s rum balls but when I made these this week I remembered how good these treats are!

RUM BALLS



1/2 c. butter
1 # powdered sugar
4 1/2 tsp rum (or bourbon)
2-3 squares semi-sweet choc. melted
Pecan halves
Beat butter (softened) until lite and fluffy
Gradually beat in sugar, then rum
Wrap in wax paper and chill 1 hr.
Roll balls, dip in choc, top with pecan
Keep in fridge or freezer!!
Enjoy!  Here are the other yummy Christmas treats this week…
