If mixture is too moist, add more weet bix.

For an alcohol free version, omit the rum. In this case the mixture may be a little dry. Reduce the weetbix to 12 initially and add more if necessary.

The recipe works with Bundaberg 5 (white rum) as well as the dark rum. I have also used the Spiced Rum. This time, I used Bundaberg Rum Royal Liqueur. which has a milder rum taste.

    Made these over Christmas and they were great!

    I used Cherry Brandy instead of rum (because that is what I had at home) and substituted half the weet bix for Arrowroot biscuits.

    Very moist and highly addictive - thanks for sharing tmrc_emoticons.)
