I didn’t know that, thank you so much for the information! No matter what people choose to do, it’s always better to be aware and informed.

I knew those rum balls packed a punch! HAHA!  I’m so showing this to my mom, she used to let us eat them all we wanted because “the alcohol cooked off!”

Actually, the AMA just released a major study linking healthier babies/pregnancies to light drinking on the part of the mother (after the really sensitive period in the first trimester), so I really can’t imagine that a small percentage of alcohol not burning off in a dish is going to make much difference. Heavy/regular drinking is bad, but the new consensus seems to be that the occasional drink really is ok. Also, cooking can denature alcohol too, even if it isn’t burned off, so it isn’t really anything to get worried about!
