    CindiJ's Note:

    My dad found this recipe in 1994 and began making this every year, batch after batch, after batch. He thought I was crazy for asking him to copy the recipe out for me (I wanted HIS handwriting) but he did it. He made this such a special memory for our entire family. It's easy, made in microwave and soooo very good. I lost my dad to cancer in 2008 and now my eldest son is wanting to take on the tradition. Here's to you Daddy.
