Chocolate Rum Balls or Ginger Brandy Truffles

Chocolate Truffles

I had a friend, who made rum balls every Christmas. Sadly, her candle burned out much too soon. So dear friends, share the love while you can. We are all on our way to dust and light. 10 ounces bittersweet…

A Lightened Up English Christmas Steamed Pudding
