Love this recipe!! its a very easy recipe to make, the hardest thing is baking it for a hour without eating it all when you take it out ever 15 minutes to stir.

My family loves this recipe! We have been making this recipe since my children were small, and now they are making with their children. It is so much fun to see the "magic" of the sauce puffing up when the baking soda goes in. It makes a great gift as well.
