We weren’t going to leave you hanging! Here’s some “special hot chocolate” to get you through the Holiday Season. I tried this after I finished baking a zillion cookies. I was looking for cake ball variations while I waited to pop the last batch out of the oven, and accidentally found this recipe which I put to good use immediately.
Mariano, I’m sorry but I used a little itty bit of our Zacapa Rum for this, it’s all the rum we had in the house (time to go shopping)
Do try this at home. I didn’t put any sugar in it, because I used semi-sweet chocolate, which is sweet enough for me. (Zacapa and Frangelico liquors are also on the sweet side.) This is the perfect ending to my day, so I bid you a good evening. I’m taking this to bed. Oh! before I go. For those of you who haven’t tried Zacapa Rum yet, let me tell you: It is the…best… rum in the world. You can read all about it here.

I apologize for the photographs… it was late.
