My first test batch almost didn’t. I was “checking” it every couple of hours. This meant at least two large tablespoons gobbled down after the first mini taste. What can I say? Clearly irresistible.

Pour all the below ingredients into a jar and give a quick stir before the lid and then a shake and roll one or two times after the lid is fastened tightly of course and refrigerate overnight. Easy peasy.
