This is a true classic and it is the one I grew up with and loved as a child (and still do). Having read the earlier review that complains about the overnight hardening despite being wrapped I was unsure but be assured while it does harden it is delicious and the chewiness of the hardened result is the desired result of this classic recipe. Thanks Alberta Gurl for posting it.

Taste delicious fresh but hardened quite a bit overnight despite being wrapped. Would consider increasing the mix or maybe adding a few marshmallows next time.
