Would never want to try this. Raw eggs? No way!

Based on THESE directions, I will not EVER give this a try!! Directions are too vague & no indication of ANYTHING tropical {pineapple, coconut, nuts, etc.}. Looks like this recipe is bound for the dumpster!

I like to know whats tropical about this recipe. there has to be something missing. i dont thick I will try this recipe. Just sounds so gross.

This has got to be the worst recipe I've ever seen!! Raw yolks!! No directions for making the caramel sauce, etc...just bizarre!

I think you need to get a very good proof-reader!

So the egg yolks never get cooked?

This was my concern also.

I wish you'd told how to make the caramel sauce. That would've been really nice.
