    This was very good. My husband and adult son loved it. My son told me I had to make more. lol

    This is a really good alternative to store bought-my husband and boys really enjoyed it! I made it in a saucepan and it came out almost fudgy pudding like-it looks a lot thinner in the photo than it actually turned out.
