Okay, this may seem a little quirky, but when your daughters begin having your grandchildren, you will understand. This is something I found on the internet and it is quite delicious. I think it might actually be as yummy for the son-in-laws as it is healthy for the daughters.

1 cup of brown sugar
1 cup of butter
