It is a local favorite here in Hawaii. I make this every year during the Holidays for gift giving. Either use mason jars or Holiday themed canning jars or plastic Holiday containers that have tight covers. Add a bow on the top, and it looks so festive. Besides it's "ono" delicious! The photo is not mine but it looks exactly like how is should be.
