Excellent! I was looking for real chocolate rumballs like momma used to make, no vanilla wafers. And this is much better than momma's, but don't tell her. I used my homemade brownies, which feature 2 cups dark chocolate chips & 2 cups chopped pecans. I made them a week ahead, left em in the frig in a plastic bag, then, day of rumballing left them in a bowl to dry out. There was 14 oz of brownie-matter, mixed with 1/4 cup & an extra splash of Cap'n Morgans Spiced rum, and I let it sit for a while...by gosh, I couldn't believe the fine paste it formed. I am glad I wasn't impatient and added more before letting it sit and get pasty! It would have been too wet. I cut it with a knife and fork, stuck it in the frig for 1/2 hour and then used a melon-baller to place each "ball" on the nonstick cookie sheet. Now, it wasn't very ball shaped at THAT point, but after 20 minutes in the freezer I was able to form them easily into a ball! Since my brownies were already over-the-top with chocolate bits in them, I decided to forego the coating; also I was feeling lazy! Sorry Chef John! But MAN they were delish anyway! After they were all rumballed up, I just rolled 1/2 in cocoa and 1/2 in powdered sugar, and put them back in the freezer. The next day, I transported all 40 of them to my husband's bandgig for a holiday treat AT A BAR and ka-whooosh, they were gone just like that. From the stage, our fiddleplayer said: ARE YOU READY TO RUMBALL? I was nearly worshipped! Thanks CJ!!!
