Plan ahead these need to sit for 2 days or longer before serving to develop flavors, that is if you can wait that long lol!

Most excellent if a tiny bit messy because I had blender issues - used my blender to chop the nuts and crush the wafers. I used Captain Morgan's Spiced Rum Private Reserve..and the end result was wonderful. I made them for the husband to take to his poker game and they were quite well received. I'll make these again and again. Thanks!
