I have almost forgotten about this memory maker recipe. I can't find the actual recipe, I brought it home from school one day and so it became a yearly Christmas tradition for me and my mom to make this wonderful edible little popcorn tree. My keikis (children) faintly remember this Christmas Tree, only because I stopped making it when my mom decided to leave. I am re-writing this recipe from memory and I hope that it is correct.
