Once you try these crunchy treats, you'll be back for more...and so will your guests! We love serving these at holiday get-togethers and they make a delicious gift too. Just pile them in a pretty dish or jar, add some ribbon and a tag and they're ready to give!
This recipe came to us from Paula Marchesi or Lenharsville, Pennsylvania...she says she sometimes makes 10 or 12 batches for holiday gifts and we can see why! Thanks again, Paula...we hope you're enjoying your copy of 101 Christmas Recipes!
