This candy tastes just like those iconic, round favorites we all love. Ever since Fred gave me that recipe, this candy has been a holiday staple in my house, and now my kids even make it, and not just for the...
"It looks like a penguin," goes the Monty Python line. It looks like a whole lot of penguins in "Penguins of Madagascar."
