  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 3 tablespoons oil

RECIPE BACKSTORY
This came from one of my mom's friends from high school...I'm not sure how they got on this subject at the reunion! *All microwaves are different, so if yours doesn't turn out with this cooking time/wattage, try tinkering with the recipe a little until you get it just right! This is my favorite midnight snack, so enjoy!!
