Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Now this one has a good story behind it. Jackie use to make it and 1 time she made it for our family for something and she was shocked because she said she has never seen a family eat the whole thing. Dad loved it.

When she passed away I told Maureen I never got the recipe from her. You see Jackie always said it was a secret family recipe. Come to find out Maureen told me it was in the Avon cookbook and low and behold it sure was, not hard to find it since it has chocolate all over the page.
