Boozie Valentine’s Day Rum Balls

Give these tiny, yummy rum treats for to your over 21 Valentines!
From Martha Stewart.

SIZE: makes 4 dozen

3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, cut into pieces
6 oz semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
3 large eggs
1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp dark rum
Red sanding sugar, for rolling
Vegetable-oil cooking spray

Preheat oven to 350F. Coat a 12-by-17″ rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray; set aside. Place butter and chocolate in a small heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water, stirring occasionally, until chocolate is melted and mixture is sooth and combined.

In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, brown sugar, vanilla, and salt. Stir in chocolate mixture, then fold in flour. Pour batter into prepared baking sheet; spread evenly. Bake, rotating halfway through, until top is shiny, about 10 minutes; a cake tester should come out with some crumbs attached. Let cool completely.

Break up brownie into small pieces; place in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. On low speed, pour in rum, and mix until crumbs start to come together to form a ball.

Shape mixture into 1″ balls. Roll in sanding sugar, coating completely. Place on a baking sheet, and refrigerate, uncovered, until chilled, about 2 hours. Serve chilled or at room temperature.
