  12. Boil for 5 minutes, stirring constantly, and remove from heat.
  13. Stir in rum.
  14. You may decorate with whipped cream before serving.
  15. Notes :
  16. ** If using yellow cake mix with pudding already in the mix, omit the instant pudding, using 3 eggs instead of 4 and 1/3 cup oil instead of 1/2.
  17. This CAN be made MONTHS ahead of the holidays and frozen! HOWEVER, DO NOT forget to take it out and thaw a COUPLE of days BEFORE SERVING! You MUST give it TIME to absorb the rum AND to mellow BEFORE serving! (OTHERWISE it is like being served a VERY STRONG shot of RUM!).
