Recipe by Aroostook

This is a new recipe that I just tried yet. Wow! What flavor!! Just right for the Christmas goodie platter. I tried a batch with the dark rum and then tried another using Malibu, a light coconut rum. I really prefer the Malibu rum in this recipe.

Simply phenomenal! I used a white chocolate bar with coconut in it that is made by Lindt and available at CostCo's World Market. THANK YOU for sharing this recipe!
