Double Chocolate Rum Balls

Double Chocolate Rum Balls & Cookie Exchange

The holiday season is such a fun time and part of the reason is… the yummy treats! This winter, I’m happy to be a part of a virtual Christmas cookie exchange. Christmas Cookie Exchange Parties are the best.  You show up the party with one kind of cookie, but collect many more cookies to enjoy. I am sharing my recipe for Double Chocolate Rum Balls for the Exchange. A big thanks to Melanie from Reasons to Skip The Housework for organizing all this.
