4. Pour those out on parchment and separate them as best as you can, because when they harden, they’ll turn into a yummy brittle that’s tough to take apart.

5. In a small bowl, mix together the mayo, honey, and condensed milk. (We accidentally cut the recipe in half during this portion. We realized our mistake and then added the extra later.)

Serve right away! It’s so good, I think I might make some more right now…

Anyway, we decided to make ours into a Build-Your-Own-Lettuce-Wrap bar for lunch. But this would be so yummy served alongside some rice or chow mein too!
