I got this recipe from good friend of mine. This stuff is seriously addicting! It makes a big batch! Anytime I have family in town I make it so I don't eat the whole batch myself. It is the perfect Christmas treat! You can eat it all year long substitute the candy cane for , heath bits, Recesses pieces, m&m's etc.. Watch out now! I bet you can't eat just one bite!
