French bread with a soft crust works best here because it is easier to cut. Garnish with fresh strawberry slices, and serve with a glass of fat-free or 1% low-fat milk.

Combine first 3 ingredients in a small, heavy saucepan. Cook over medium heat until bubbly and sugar dissolves, stirring constantly. Pour sugar mixture into an 11 x 7–inch glass or ceramic baking dish coated with cooking spray, spreading evenly over bottom of dish.

Excellent for slumber parties but double cook time

May 22, 2016
This is my go to recipe for all slumber parties- and we have many. Prep is easy. Double your cool time - I've tried this recipe many times in 3 different ovens and it has NEVER been done after 30 minutes. Give yourself an hour in the oven.
