My Grandma made this at a family party and everyone went crazy over it! It was the hit of the party!!!
She got this recipe from Taste of Home magazine. It was one of the best holiday recipes of 2006.
This makes an easy, delicious dessert to bring to your next Christmas party. This also great change from cookies and pies (although those are awesome too!)
