Step 1: Step 1

Place all ingredients into bowl, and place bowl in microwave.

Step 2: Step 2

Set microwave timer at 30 seconds, and press START. Stop, stir and repeat.

WATCH CAREFULLY through microwave window as the ingredients tend to bubble up with the heat. When the mixture begins to rise simply stop, stir and start again.

REPEAT until the mixture is thick and slides off the spoon upon stirring (about 5 or 6 times).

Step 3: Step 3

Allow mixture to cool before digging in with a big spoon and an eager sweet tooth!

*Suggestion* Add sprinkles or coconut flakes for extra flair upon serving.
