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.


Are you making this? 
1 1/2 Sticks unsalted butter
6 Ounces luxe semi or bittersweet chocolate
3 Large Eggs
1/2 Cup Light or Dark Brown Sugar
1 Teaspoon Vanilla extract
1/2 Teaspoon Coarse salt
5 Tablespoons Rum (or whatever)
Non stick cooking spray

Original recipe makes 48 Servings



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.
