This is a recipe that my mom has been making for years and years. It tastes wonderful and is so comforting on a cold winter’s night. It uses two ingredients and is so simple, but has a great depth of flavor. She always makes this every Christmas and also recently made this for a gathering and said I could post it to my blog. So, Thanks Mom!:) Try it for a crowd or you could halve the recipe for a smaller group. This is one you will definitely go back to for a second cup!
