This was my Grandma Bure's recipe and she made it for me when I was a little girl. Yep, I loved chocolate even then. I remember making this in the kitchen with my mom and with my own children as they were growing up. It still remains a family favorite. Recently I made 4 batches that were consumed by my daughter's college soccer team. They didn't last long. Enjoy!
