    I make a ton of this every year during Christmas because it is every one’s favorite. I pass it out to all of my friends and neighbors and they love it. It has been a fan favorite for many years.

    Made this at Christmas time 2013. It was everyone's favorite. Also made a gluten free version omitting the Golden Grahams. Easy to make, makes a good amount and lasts a long time in an airtight container.
