Chocolates Rusticos
30 mins (prep 30)
13 ingredients
24 servings
These are similar to rum balls, except they are made with sweet sherry and almonds. These were created for ZWT5 and in honor of one of my ancestors who sailed in the Spanish armada. Oh, and a second difference: the chocolate is on the outside, not the inside. Cook/prep time does not include time to meld the flavors (about a day).
