This recipe is from my cousin who is a great cook. They are one of my favorite squares.

Family and guests alike, all loved it; the few pieces that remained uneaten were eaten the following day and they tasted even better - this could be one of those recipes where the taste and texture of the final product is enriched with time.
I didnt add nuts bec I wasnt sure if our guests suffered from a nut allergy, and $it turned out just fine; though I would've loved the crunchiness of nuts, such as almonds, which are our favourite. Will add nuts next time.
