KB's mom's coconut fudge. It sounds gross, but it is absolutely delish. I'm currently eating some now with my coffee. It's so delightfully nutty, creamy and coconutty, without being overpowering. I ended up eating this instead of pumpkin pie.

My sweet potatoes that everyone thought would be gross. I'm happy to report that almost everyone (except for KB) liked my Parmesan and Pecan sweet potatoes. They weren't too cheesy, but had just enough bite to keep from being too sweet. KB still liked the traditional sweet potato casserole with the brown sugar and pecans on top.

My hot buttered rum was a miss for most people. It seems weird to say, but it was just too buttery! Me, KB, my dad and my sister all shared one cup (yeah we have no germ boundaries in our household) and that was all that was drank. It was good once you skimmed the layer of butter fat off the top, which seemed pretty gross. Next time I make it (if there even is a next time) I'll more than likely use way less butter or even clarified butter.
