Top Review by Chef KP

This is great and easy! I added some cinnamon and a few dashes of nutmeg and a bit of ground cloves w/ a bit of baking soda and vanilla to the sugar and margarine while it was melting and that just made it all the better-- not to mention it smells fantastic, especially in the fall :)
