Wow-this was exactly what I was looking for! So easy to make-and so delicious. Just be careful when you light the rum, as we almost burned our kitchen down!

This was one of those very easy desserts that looks quite difficult to make & was sooo yummy! I used Jamaican rum & lactose free ice cream & it was great! Thanks for sharing the recipe - DH & I loved it!
