    Baby Kato's Note:

    These are so good, and best of all they are quick and easy to make. They are also very easy to double...and believe me, after you taste these you will wish you had doubled the recipe...I hope you enjoy these amazing squares as much as we do. Please note* there is no baking time.

      Very good, like a no bake cake with similar ingredients. I used 1/2 cup of sugar only and it was just right for us.

      These were delightful little treats! They were just a tad too sweet for me, so next time I will probably use 1/2 cup of sugar instead of 3/4 cup. Perfect for tea parties as well as edible gifts. Will be made again!
