Boozy Puerto Rican Rum Balls

Happy Almost New Year!!! 2016 has been an amazing year for Prep Dish. We cannot thank our subscribers enough for all of their support – you have definitely given us plenty to celebrate! And on that note, we have the perfect party treat: gluten free and paleo Boozy Puerto Rican Rum Balls.

Inspired by my time on the Island, my gluten free and paleo Rum Balls pay tribute to the dark rum that Puerto Ricans love so much! Parents: head’s up, I named these “boozy” for a reason. The recipe has a tip for making them kid friendly. 🙂
