I thought this recipe was better the next day. It has strong flavors and I tried serving it with ice cream, then with pound cake. I preferred it with the pound cake. I think it could use a bit more of the brown sugar, or maybe some granulated sugar. It would be great served with fresh whipped cream.

This an easy and impressive dessert, a variation of one from Betty Crocker. Most guests look a little disappointed when they see a dish of fruit for dessert - that quickly turns to raves of WOW with the first bite. I use dark spiced rum, canned grapefruit and mandarin oranges, and serve it plain and warm; but it will keep indefinitely in the refrigerator, and is also delicious cold. Delicious.
