"Ahh, my sons and I have happy memories of making these treats together when they were growing up. I recently sent a batch to my son at his air force base. He made the "mistake" of sharing them with some of his buddies and before he knew it the pecans were all gone. He called me with a plaintive request: "Mom, please send me some more pecans!" I happily obliged."
