This recipe is an old time favorite from back in the 1960's when my children were small. I don't remember where I found it but this is the recipe I have been using every since.

My youngest daughter named them as she thought they tasted like the Krunch Candy Bar.

This cookie still goes into the family Christmas box each year.
