This is VERY easy to make and absolutely wonderful. It disappears quickly!! I got the recipe from my friend in Quebec. The original was brought over from France when the first settlers arrived in "Nouvelle France" or Quebec. Somewhere over time it became "Grand-pere" when someone substituted maple syrup for the brown sugar/water mix. Both versions are INCREDIBLY DELICIOUS! It is wonderful served warm with vanilla ice cream or cool whip. It also good served cold or room temperature.
