What treat says “autumn” more that caramel apples? Today, I’m taking part in the Improv Cooking Challenge, where we are given two ingredients and come up with a recipe including those two ingredients. For October, it’s apples and caramel. While I love a good green apple dipped in warm caramel sauce, I wanted a more grown up treat. Enter the yumminess that is apple flavored rum..
Although quite decadent, rum balls are ridiculously easy to make.
Putting the hot caramel sauce into a Ziploc bag and cutting a itty-bitty tip off the corner of the bag, seems to be the best way to get a controlled drizzle. I had to wrap a dishcloth around the bag because the sauce was hot. Ouch!
Hold the caramel bag close to the rum balls and slowly drizzle it on. I say slow because the caramel tends to roll off the powdered sugar if you go too fast.
When you’re done, put the balls in to mini paper baking cups or layer them in a martini glass for a fancy, grown-up treat!
