Great addition to the candy/cookie trays. And so easy. My mom made a similar treat for Christmas when I was growing up.

Quick, easy and so scrumdiddlyumptious! It doesn't get any better than this recipe. I made these exactly as written and left them overnight in the refrigerator overnight. Not only did these make for a pretty platter for the Christmas table, but the adults loved these. I have evaporated milk left, and so will be making more of these later today!
