Directions:
Mix all of the ingredients in a large bowl by hand. This will be
sticky and will take strong hands to mix thoroughly. Once all
ingredients have been thoroughly mixed, separate mixture into
rolls (about 1 1/2 - 2 inches in diameter and about 10-12 inches
long) this size is optional. Wrap each roll carefully in waxed paper
or plastic wrap. Refrigerate or freeze. When ready to serve cut
roll in about 1/4 inch slices and enjoy.

Personal Notes:
This is a recipe that Mama made, for many years, every
Christmas holiday. I remember that it was one of Allen's favorite
treats and his slices were a bit more than 1/4 inch!!!
