Recipe by MinnMomof2

I got this recipe from our OT at school. It was a hit and is a hit every time I bring it anywhere. I took it to a girls weekend and my girlfriends couldn't keep their hands out of it! I wanted to be sure I could always find this recipe;) It works well to split the mixture into 3-4 9"x13" pans so you can stir it easily and bake.
