I made this fudge as written and several people loved it as is, however, I have to say I did not care for the rum extract at all - I find it gives it too much of a "chemical-type" taste. I also found that using both toasted coconut and coconut extract was a bit too much coconut flavor. I increased the pineapple to probably around 3/4 cup. Next time I make it I will leave out the rum extract and coconut extract and will increase the pineapple to at least 3/4 cup of possibly 1 cup. I also didn't sprinkle any of the macadamia nuts on top, but just simply incorporated all of them into the fudge. Since there were some people that loved it as written I decided to go with 4 stars instead of 3. I will make this again, but with the above stated changes.
