Dark Chocolate Orange Rum Balls ~ Holy balls of holiday goodness! We adults can all use a little fun and special treat around this time of year, amiright? Sure … we can decorate the sugar cookies like nobody’s business, and drink in the egg nog with the best of them but, I am talking a little ball of special something with a no kids allowed attitude. Let’s face it we all need a break sometimes and these little spheres of dark chocolate-y sweetness could be just the ticket. Have a friend or neighbor that needs something extra this year? Wrap a few of these up in a cute little box or tin and share a smile. There really is something great about having a few of these on-hand (or in this case in your hand) and popping them on in. Who doesn’t love food in ball form?
