So, I pulled out one of my many, many cookbooks, a 1985
Southern Living one to be exact. Flipping through the pages
two pieces of notebook paper fell out with two recipes, in my
Hum...it was my handwriting from a much earlier period in
my life. You know how when you are younger you
experiment with different styles of writing? This was my
period of loops and swirls. Life was good in 1985-so this just
had to be a great recipe. Please, please do not ask me where
or who I copied this recipe from...It is as much of a
mystery to me as to you.
But, honestly it won't matter one bit when you bite into this
heavenly treat. They are a cross between a bar cookie and
fudge! The consistency is amazing and they are oh so, so
easy. I made a few little adaptations here and there just to
take them to the next level of pure decadent delight!
