This recipe has been handed down by Pennsylvania Dutch farmers for years. I got it from my Mom who got it from her Mom, etc. It has few ingredients, zero fat, and has a texture akin to fresh fondant, literally melting in your mouth, not in your hand.
Almost limitless potential- flavoring could be anything, and depends upon ingredients on hand, mood, season, etc. (My mother used to use mint flavoring.) Most often I bring this to church potlucks, or for Christmas and wedding occasions as it is easy to make and when people start eating it, they seem to never get quite enough.
