You are so right! We are all about some chess squares here in Mississippi! I've made them with every variations under the sun, but I still think this recipe is the best!

Many blessings!

These are such a favorite! I teach high school and have one class I keep the same kids in for 4 years. In this class, this is what we make for special celebrations. The recipe is handed down from the seniors to the juniors at our graduation party. They LOVE it.
