I usually give a different homemade treat to my nieces and nephews every Christmas. This rich no-bake candy was a hit. With just four ingredients, it's easy enough for kids to make.

"This is easy to make, but not any more so than most no-bake cookies. And I found the taste to be fine, but nothing special. I do not plan to make these again."
