This yummy candy is a must for all lovers of Graham Crackers. It's absolutely addictive.
My mother-in-law made this special recipe every Christmas. After she passed away her daughter served it at our Christmas get-together, and finally, passed it on it me. Now it is one of my favorite treats during the holidays.
