Fruitcake Roons

I added these dessert for our Media Noche last Dec.31, 2015. I had this brochure from Del Monte Kitchenomics since I don't know when and it has recipes for the holiday season. I so wanted to make fruitcake since last year but I just didn't had time to do it. And I saw this recipe and it looked easy so I thought well why don't I gave it a try.

Well it tasted like a fruitcake, but the kids didn't like it, haha! I suggest don't buy local glazed fruits coz I didn't like the taste of it. Or add dates and more nuts like pecans or walnuts. I just added cashew nuts and I'm glad I added nuts coz the glazed fruits' taste are just overpowering.

Anyway, here are my fruitcake roons from Del Monte. Recipe below the pic...
