Directions:
Directions:
Cook until warm over med-low heat, just until sugars are dissolved. Stir frequently so it doesn't burn or stick. Adjust sugars to taste (should be extra sweet). May need to add more milk for desired consistency. Needs to be sort of thin as it thickens when cooled. Cool completely.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
My mom always made nut rolls for Christmas so I carry on the tradition. Everyone loves these! They are extremely difficult, as the filling is a dump recipe mom rattled off one year when I was helping her make them. If you get it too thin, the rolls split and it comes out onto the cookie sheet. I suggest baking one sheet, then adjusting the nut filling if necessary. It takes about 45 minutes to get a sheet ready for the oven.
