Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This counterfeit recipe isn't exactly like D&B's - more like Schallers. But someone suggested putting more sugar in to make it more like D&B's. I think it requires some experimentation and playing around with the various ingredients. While we didn't make this very often at home, we certainly consumed enormous quantities of it while dining out. Had we had this recipe earlier, we might have made it at home more often.
