Ever since I was a young child, Rum Balls were a key component of special events like Birthdays, Christmas and special Afternoon Tea's. I can clearly remember lot's of arguments with my sisters over the last remaining drops of Condensed Milk sitting at the bottom of the tin: Yum!.
Keeping with tradition I now make Rum Balls on a regular basis as they are so easy and so yummy. The only puzzling element is why I have always called them Rum Balls, when they are in fact made with Sherry and not Rum!.
Enjoy your Wicked Wednesday Chocolate (and Sherry) fix.
