Why I Love This Recipe

I have a good friend who loves rum balls. So I searched until I found a recipe. I found one in a recipe book that was over 50 years old, that my Mom used with I was a kid. You know...back in the old days.... But I updated a little to go along with todays recipes. Great for christmas gifts to adults.
