maddy - White rum works but I found its pretty mild in flavour (white is all I had)....I think dark rum would give a better depth of flavour. Loved this ice cream Chookie  and it doesn't get easier than this one to make!
It also fit perfectly in the tovolo ice cream tub.  Cool. Definitely will make again, and use dark rum next time.
I added a couple of squirts of Americolor "chocolate brown" gel colouring, whilst ice cream was churning.
This will not set hard because of the Rum. I left my raisins soaking for 2 days and next time I will add more raisins & rum.

Cookie1 - Ooh I do love this ice-cream. I eventually made it yesterday after several days of soaking. I licked bowls, beaters, spatulas and everything I could.

Hum, I've drank my Rum.  I have some White Chocolate Port from the Chocolate Factory Shop in Echuca, that might be nice.

I think I've only got white rum Chookie, is that OK to use?  I bought raisins the other day to do CC's bonbons but ran out of time so I have plenty of those.  Gosh they are expensive - $10 for a 1 kg box (the smallest I could find).

This will be my next icecream. Yummy.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

Judy,  all fine,  the raisins will keep,  even if they go sugary you can still use them.
