Soooo good. Thank you! I was worried when I saw the milk curdle up and separate from the syrup even before it started to boil, but it all came out great at the end. I think I beat it too long, though. It hardened up so quickly that only half of the contents poured out. The rest just hardened right in the pan.

Yum! This was very easy to make and so good! I halved the recipe and used a 4x6 pan lined with wax paper. I got about 24 bite sized squares from that. They were the perfect size for something so sweet! Thanks for a great recipe, Nathalie, I will definitely be making these again!
