I liked this alot. I had a challenge getting it to thicken, so cooked much longer. It was yummy. Thanks for posting! Made for Culinary Quest Philippines 2016 (Stacy G)

This was sooo good. My whole dinner party enjoyed it - even those who were never keen on mango or kiwi. My sauce never really thickened while I was cooking it, but it did when I set it aside to cool. This was really quick to throw together after a meal. Thanks! Made for ZWT5 Family Picks.

What can I say? This was excellent! I used Cream Cheese Pound Cake for the cake, which was scrumptious! I always have trouble using fresh mango, as the meat always comes out in chunks, so I go the jarred mango. I do wish I had used another kiwi fruit for a little more balance. Otherwise, followed the instructions to a T. Used the good Gold rum. Will fix this again. Thnx for posting, Mami Janine. Made for ZWT5 for RRR.
