This old recipe of my grandmother Mabel Kennedy Sullivan, was lost for years, then one day while doing genealogy, I found it in a letter dated 1933 in my grandmother's hand writing! It means the world to me! She taught me to read and write by copying recipes and writing letters to her siblings. We made many recipes together but this one always touches my heart because we always made this for my youngest of 8 brothers, Bobby, who had her convinced he had "Chocolate Diabetes" and the cure was lots of chocolate!!! What a stinker he was! I miss them both, but still have the memories!
