      This is an awesome recipe!!! I would prefer these turtles over Fannie May, any day! It is a bit time consuming, but the results are fantastic.

      The recipe calls for 1 can of condensed milk.... doesnt specify if this is the sweetened type or the plain condensed cooking milk. Since it didnt say "sweetened" I used the plain and it didnt turn out well at all. Please correct this ingredient description.

      Awesome recipe! I found this last year when the one I was using wasn't really "authentic" enough for my taste. These to me taste like the real deal. I love them and can't wait to make them again. time consuming yes, but totally worth it.
