This recipe has been in my recipe box for a long time- I think I got it from "The Gourmet Gift Basket"..I used to work there putting gift baskets together for casino functions and corporate business functions..holidays were always very busy..and this was one of the favorite choices to be in the baskets...once we had 273 baskets to make up for one client that had 12 different items -including coffee,candy, popcorn,cookies, crackers, cheese,hard salami,,etc...
