  5. Place the saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly to prevent lumps.
  6. Cook for a few minutes until the mixture thickens and begins to bubble.

  9. Transfer the mixture to a greased mold (approximately 7-inch diameter) and cover with plastic wrap to prevent a film from forming.
  10. Refrigerate for at least 3 to 4 hours until well chilled.
