  1. Sounds yummy--but what does rich milk mean? whole milk? I know, I know, I can google it. And I agree about no nuts!

  2. I'll be making this! YUM!


  3. I'm not one to comment on typos, but this one made me laugh. I think you meant "Add other ingredients" rather than "Ass other ingredients" :)

    Man, that sounds tasty.

  4. Mmm graham crackers and marshmallows and chocolate! I might have to try making this one.
