Introduction

My son loved this as a tea time treat when he was younger, and now I still make it regularly, even as a dessert, serving it with whipped amaretto cream. You can use other varieties of nuts and if you are making it for children, omit the rum. You could of course flavour it with another liqueur of your choice.

  • Additional Information

    Don't worry if the mixture seems rather soft, it will harden. I usually make it the evening before I need it, as I think it tastes even better.
