About a month ago when I was getting into all the Christmas stuff I was looking through a Christmas cookbook, I wanted to make something for when everyone comes over. I decided to make rum balls which was funny because the same day I was looking at the book my mum tells me that she wanted to make rum balls, I told her I was thinking the same thing.
After work today my mum got all the ingredients so we could make them. Now I’m a really bad cooker/baker in general, I can’t cook for shit and everyone knows it. I told my mum that we should do it tonight and she said she was too tired and for me to go ahead. I walked out to the kitchen and started with everything. I first had to crush cookies which took awhile, then I had to put in powdered sugar which my sister thought we had but we didn’t have enough so we had to make more. My mum didn’t know that you can just put normal sugar into a grinder and it makes icing sugar. Then I had to chop up walnuts and mix all of that together, next was mixing booze and corn syrup together then pouring it into all the other stuff and mixing that. I’m a very messy person apparently and while doing this I somehow got rum on me. Next step was the roll the mixture into small balls and roll them into more icing sugar then put them in a container and let them sit for five days.
I have no idea if they are going to taste good, I have a feeling they are going to be strong but that’s alright. I just really hope they taste good or people won’t eat them and I will feel like shit and will probably never try to make food every again! I will write how they are in five days!
