Just perfect! I had fun making it - sort of like a science experiment watching it boil. ;-) I am certainly glad that I paid attention to your directions and used a 2-cup measure as it boiled right up to the lip at first before simmering down. After it cooled and thickened a bit, I couldn't think of anything that needed topping so I just ate it with a spoon. Next time I will either use unsalted butter or omit the added salt as I can certainly taste it. This is a *WINNER* of a recipe! So glad you posted it!
Engrossed was being modest by saying that this "turned out pretty good"...it is great!! Other than making four times the recipe (but only microwaving for 3 minutes), I made no changes, and I doubt I will in future. The flavour reminded me of my mother's fudge, and I loved it. It did thicken as it cooled, almost to a pudding consistency, and I am ashamed to say that I ate the leftovers with a spoon. If I needed it to remain pourable, I guess either using a little less cornstarch, or adding a little extra milk would do the trick. Since two in my family are diabetic, it is not easy to find healthier recipes that taste like the real deal, but this one does.
