Watching my mom make this candy every Christmas is a core memory for me. She always made a LOT and handed it around whenever company showed up and sent it out on goodie plates. Things like this become a part of holiday tradition. Food is such an important part of the magic.

They are pretty fast and easy so a winner on all fronts!
