“This candy is crunchy and chewy and very sweet. It's one of my favorite treats at Christmas time. This recipe makes a large batch but it freezes very well. My grandma makes this in the microwave so I've included her microwave cooking instructions. I estimated the serving size to be about 1/4 cup.”
