Merry Christmas, with Rum!
I have, on my mother's side, eight first cousins. Of those eight, two are genuinely nice to me. Last year I mentioned on facebook my (then) newfound love of rum balls and one of my genuinely nice cousins posted a quick "Feel free to bring me by a batch. lol" And so I did. This year I am making him some as well. The thing is his sister, the second genuinely nice cousin, is a recovering alcoholic so she can't have any. In fact, I don't know if there will be any alcohol at all at my extended family's Christmas festivities this year and I don't want to be responsible for some showing up. (I never attend the festivities because of the 1-4 ratio of genuinely nice to me people there so I have no idea what's there or not.) So now I have to smuggle rum balls to my cousin. This has become so much more complicated than I thought it would be.
