I got this recipe from an old coworker, who got it from another coworker, who got it from his mother. It came out gooey and heavy and good. (Let it sit for a few hours before you cut it.) I feel bad posting the whole recipe online for the world to see (the world being the one…yes, literally, I have one…subscriber to this blog), but I’m going to. Because things this good should be shared with the world. Just be sure to credit Mama G when you make it.
