A great after dinner treat with cognac or coffee. I make mine smaller for less guilty eating (no less calories tho) and roll in hazelnuts and use Frangelico instead of rum for an even more decandent flavor.

A complete joy to give as a gift. Use for Christmas time or holiday trays of candy or for romantic and special evenings to share with your sweet love.
