This classic Holiday Season treat is so easy to make…
…and tastes best if you can prepare them in advance (at least one week), to allow for the liquor to really permeate the rest of the ingredients. I love anything with rum in it… and when combined with chocolate and walnuts, these bit sized Rum Balls, or Yum Balls as known in my household, don’t stay around for too long.
The holidays are fun anf festive time at the Trebek household. We decorate our home and I am also in charge of decorating my church. I like to put out large festive wreaths on our gate when the holidays are around the corner. When guests come over I love to have these Bourbon Balls ready to serve.
