These are easy to make and we save the bacon grease in the freezer in snall snack baggies until ready to use.

Last year we had only 4 squirrels nexts when we moved in. This winter we have 13. Anyone knowing me knows it is a special number. My guess is Freddie invited his friends over for the winter. Last year I went through ten square cakes from Dec when we moved in until April. This year I have went through 11 from Dec until now.
