These are an experiment that was hugely successful! Even my 75 year old mother loves them! We had a hard time finding pineapple Jell-o, but it's worth the effort. For the best results, put the rum in the 'fridge for an hour or two before making these. These are NOT for children!

These were at hit at our last get together. Although I did add just a touch for almond extract. Awesome!

This will be a great one to take to the big shindig. Think I'll add a chunck of pinapple or a slice of orange.

I made these for a Fourth of July party this year and they went over big! Everyone loved them and they were very delicious!
