These are a sea breeze to make,  mix Butter Pecan Cake Mix, instant butterscotch pudding, a stick of melted butter, butterscotch chips,  eggs, and a little coconut rum*  to keep things on Island Time  ๐ŸŒด

*if you don’t want to use coconut rum, substitute water {or regular rum}  flavored with 1 T coconut extract.  Don’t worry, the alcohol bakes off during cooking
