Something New, #114

One of my officemates went to Andre's for lunch today, and brought back treats for us.

One was a rum ball, in which, apparently, Andre's uses real rum.

Lots and lots of it.

I'd never had a rum ball, much less a chocolate covered one, so I took a bite.

I was dizzy the rest of the afternoon.

Andre's recipe for rum balls is to take all the crumbs and bits of cake that stick to the cake pans and put it in a bowl somewhere and pour as much rum as it will absorb. Then they roll the whole thing in dark chocolate.

No cake flavor whatsoever.

I took it home and gave The Ex a bite, and he spit it out, because he had to drive home and knew he wouldn't have passed a breathalizer test.

I'm surprised I didn't pass out on my keyboard.
