  1. This looks melt in your mouth delicious and the fact that it only takes five minutes to pull together makes it even better. We don’t have any new neighbors but I bet they’d still welcome a treat like this. Happy Mother’s Day and enjoy those grandbabies!

  2. OMG. I never thought I’d say this but I kinda’ hate you for this post. As it turns out, I already have ALL these ingredients in my pantry (the walnuts are “left over” from Christmas). Gosh – now I have to “keep busy” all day, less I am tempted to make this delicious-looking/sounding recipe. The sad fact is I could eat the whole pan by myself! Thanks Chloe! 🙂

  3. I made this recipe when some relatives were in town for a visit and it was a huge success! They thought it was delicious and were very impressed. Little did they know how easy and few ingredients were involved.
