From "Backpacker Magazine". I thought it would be worth a try next summer (2003).

Top Review by Bethany D

I used this recipe for a "hands on" lesson in measurement for kindergarteners. This was a real life and concrete way for them to see what they learn in action! Great for any children, easy to make (nuts were eliminate for those with allergies... did not change the end result at all.) WONDERFUL and EASY!! Simple supervision with the hot plate (or teacher's aide doing the "cooking") was the only adult action necessary.
