Tips
Success
Be sure to use sweetened condensed milk, not evaporated. Evaporated milk is thinner and does not contain added sugar, which is needed for this recipe.
Substitution
No baking pans with sides? Line 2 large cookie sheets with heavy duty foil and fold up all the edges so the mix doesn’t slide off.
