This basically you're run of the mill rum ball recipe. But I call it surprise because I use whatever is in the cabinet, and never adhere to the suggested amount. This recipe will make up to 4 dozen depending on how big you make them.
You're basically making a brownie, adding alcohol, and shaping the balls.
* Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
* In a large mixing bowl, whisk the eggs, light brown sugar, vanilla & salt.
* In a large metal or glass bowl combine the butter & chocolate. Set over a saucepan of boiling water, stirring occasionally as the mixture melts.
* Whisk the melted chocolate into the egg mixture.
* Stir in the flour.
* Spray a 12" x 17" rimmed baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray
* Pour in the batter. Use a spatula to smooth it evenly.
* Bake for 10 minutes (depending on your oven).
* Remove pan to let mixture cool.
* Break up the brownie pieces into the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment (I user my food processor) and add in the rum. Mix until smooth dough like texture.
* Scoop out the dough by the tablespoon & roll into a ball.
If you think you're going to heavy hand the alcohol you may have to adjust the recipe. If you add to much liquid the balls will be harder to shape.
