    Hi Candice, these look amazing… mine not so much. =/ What size can of evaporated milk? I take it not a 12 oz can because that’s what I used and I ended up with a sticky mess even after chilling it over night? Also it mentions salt but doesn’t say it in the list of ingredients, how much salt? Thanks so much, I plan to try try again. ;)
