“I've been making these at Christmas time for years. My family demands them and they are wonderful gifts, much appreciated by all my co-workers. They are firm, but melt in your mouth and don't stick to your teeth. They are somewhat time consuming but worth it. I buy the red and green wrappers or you can cut up and use regular wax paper.”
