    I made this candy for a big open house that I gave and people went nuts! Since we are all about the same age, we remembered eating this candy as kids. It was a big success! The only problem was finding the cherry chips, but after when I did, it was lovely!

    This is a candy I grew up with. Everytime we went back to Missouri my mom would buy a couple of cases to take home. For us that was all over as my dad was in the Air Force. Great Idea for Christmas gifts.
