There are 7 ingredients in this recipe, but the directions only use 5..It says to combine the first 3 ingredients, then it says to add the last 2, but the 2 middle ingredients, sweetened condensed milk and margarine are left out. Maybe this was a typo and the first part should say to add the first 5 ingredients...the numbers 3 and 5 do look alike and easy to mix up.
