Are you already feeling festive? I’m enjoying the pre-Christmas season in New York right now. Yesterday was the lightning event of the huge Christmas tree in Rockefeller Center. I didn’t see it live (I don’t do well with crowds of people) but for me it is the symbol that Christmas is just around the corner. I can’t wait to start decorating when I get home!
This is my go-to rum ball recipe, enriched with gingerbread spice for the holiday season. The gingerbread rum balls have a creamy, cocoa taste, while the apricot jam gives it a tartish flavor and the dark rum flavor makes it a favorite among adults.
