Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This recipe came from Jan Collier, one of the busiest women I have ever known. She says, "This is a recipe that any busy mother who has to take things to kids events MUST have. From beginning to end, it takes about 30 minutes. Use the same pan for mixing everything on the stove. Oh yes, and it is also delicious!"
It's so easy that even I made it once or twice...
