I always make rum balls for the holidays. This year I can't make them, because the ingrediants are too expencive, but I wanted to share with you. A little hint, use flavored rum when your making these. I use banana rum, chocolate rum.... and so on. Add's a huge hint of flavor

Yum-Rum Balls

Prep: 40 min., Cook: 10 min., Chill: 3 hrs.

1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
3 cups semisweet chocolate morsels
3 tablespoons dark rum
1/2 cup chocolate cookie crumbs
1/2 cup powdered sugar

Cook sweetened condensed milk and chocolate morsels in a heavy saucepan over medium heat, stirring often, until chocolate morsels melt.
Remove from heat, and stir in rum. Pour into a lightly greased 8-inch square pan. Cover and chill 3 hours or until firm.

Shape mixture into 1 1/4-inch balls; roll in chocolate cookie crumbs and then in powdered sugar. Place balls in miniature paper baking cups, if desired. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 1 week.
