April 4, 2011 by Leanne Vogel July 20, 2015Okay so… rum is not part of my cleanse plan. And I know we’re so far away from Christmas that even the mention of rum balls may be depressing for some of you [sorry]. But with 12 inches of snowfall on Saturday, my mind + body was totally seasonally confused. It all started when I’d gotten back from an afternoon walk with the dogs. The air was cold, the wind was blowing, and there was so much snow in my boots I could no longer feel my toes. Next thing I knew I was grabbing the rum and pouring it into my chocolate batter. I’d like to propose we bring back the rum ball and make it an all season dessert. Anyone with me? I was off my cleanse for 5 minutes as I enjoyed these gluten and sugar free creations, then whipped up a batch of carrot, ginger, lemon juice to offset the alcohol. haha I can’t believe I just typed that. A girl’s gotta have some fun once in awhile.
pecans, wafer cookies, powdered sugar, shortening, cocoa powder, corn syrup, rumMoral of the story: if you’re going to have rum balls while on a cleanse, have these ones. What’s your favorite rum filled recipe? I promise, no more rum until I’m done this cleanse… I’m just curious. Mine would definitely have to be rum balls! What’s the weather like where you are? What’s the best thing you ate over the weekend? Peach pancake cobblers… mmmm
