Butter Rum Bars

I have always loved Butter Rum flavor. Whenever I had a nickel or two, as a child, I would buy a tube of Butter Rum LIfe Savers! I tried to hide them to make them last, or my 3 sibs, would find out and then they disappeared in a hurry. Even if I was successful in hiding behind the hedge, I felt they were always gone too soon!
These grown up bars are reminiscent of those candies. But, they make enough bars to share, so you won’t have to hoard them, or hide them, as I did my Life Savers.
I hope you enjoy these delicate bars.
