This is my Dad's recipe he showed me how to make it and it has been a family tradition to make the candy every year. It is a very good candy for the holidays.

My family makes this to and it makes great teacher gifts. I also use cinnamon oil and red food coloring as well as the peppermint and green food coloring. Looks really pretty wrapped in cellophane bags.
