Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Papa and Mama make these each year on New Years Eve. and we can't wait for them to come out of the boiler to roll in the sugar. We place them gently into Mama's large green bowls and can't wait to have permission to eat one. This is a wonderful memory, Thank you for always taking the time.
