This is a recipe that I made quite by accident one night and has become a favorite of my family. We always make it when someone is sick. It's great because, just the title indicates, even a poor man can make it.
This is such a wonderful tasting candy. The recipe comes from an elementary school cookbook. The original recipe called for using peppermint extract as the flavoring. I have found that it is equally good using coconut extract to flavor it with.
This is the dish my husband and sons ask for most often. It's similar to the appetizer 'potato skins' that you can order only this dish is much more family friendly. I hope you'll enjoy these as much as we do.
