“All the basic food groups represented in this one! Chocolate, coconut, nuts, rum and coffee! I found this on another site a couple of years ago, but, I keep loosing my paper copy and have to get it out here so I can always find it, and for everyone else to enjoy!This is a BIG family favorite....especially for my sister-in-law Glenda. She is disappointed when I don't make it for family gatherings. You will LOVE this.”
