This recipe is a keeper!! The rum and walnut flavors really come through. I doubled the recipe and followed the same directions with no problems.I made the mistake of chilling it too long and it hardened up a bit too much to handle but a short trip to the microwave solved that problem in just a couple of minutes. Thanks so much for posting! =)
