Don’t let the name fool you, these treats are yummy! They have been around for every Christmas that I can remember. My great-grandmother always made them, then my grandmother took over, and now my mom makes them every holiday season. I entered them in the county fair when I was a kid. They have also been sent to many soldiers overseas, including my dad and brother.
