The recipe as published by Dear Abby uses corn syrup. I used this recipe and it did not set at all. It came out more liquid than it went in. Needless to say it went in the trash!

question or comment
I think they forgot the corn syrup? Rather important to hold it all together.

CDKitchen Note: This version uses 1 cup sugar instead of 1 cup corn syrup.

This recipe brings accolades every time I make it. The non-use of corn syrup is a bonus.
