Easy peasy Christmas gifts
Well this morning I'm back in the kitchen, baby sound asleep, boy child as my helper. We whipped up a batch of German ginger biscuits, rum balls and these easy peasy Christmas presents for the teachers and friends at school.
Recipe found here . Being safety conscious mummy I substituted smarties for the jaffas, didn't want the poor little blighters choking on their Christmas gift!
BTW - Last year the man of the house and I happened upon the secret to keeping our rum balls round after many years of making the same recipe and calling them rum flats. Now the average Jo may say just use less rum - no way! They tasted just as good flat, but were a bit embarrassing to serve to guests, so a good half an hour in the fridge before final shaping was the answer. I love reading this recipe every year and in pencil beside the ingredient list where it says 3 teaspoons of rum, the man of the house has pencilled "more like 5!".
