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.
