  1. This looks yummy. i like the fact that it also, looks easy to make, simple ingredients that are easily accessible and do not break the bank . The refrigerating for three days requires patience though as one awaits the tasty looking snack. I’m gonna give it a try. I’m not much of a baker because , really do not have enough time to go through complicated recipes but this looks doable to me. Thank you  

    1. Good news!  You don’t have to refrigerate them for 3 days before eating, they are good to eat as soon as they have cooled and set up.  I was referring to storing leftovers.  Thank you for catching my error!
