These were a favorite of my mother-in-law. However, she never could make these without burning them so she would buy the ingredients and have me make them for her. She was the best mother-in law anyone could ask for and I miss her dearly.

They are so good but you have to stay on top of them to keep them from burning and they set up fast! Really easy once you know what you're dealing with. LOL
