This was given to me many years ago, by a friend who said she got it from the school cafeteria!! They are so good and sticky. I make them around Christmas time. Start buying the ingredients as soon as they are in the grocery stores, a few at a time because they are so expensive but really worth it! Serve really small squares, since they are very rich! They make great Christmas gifts too!
