My daughter made these for us for our Christmas Eve celebration, and they did not disappoint! We've been fighting over the leftovers in the days since then! (one left and I have hidden it in the fridge.. under the broccoli.. They'll never find it, shhhh don't tell!)

Since she was flying in late for the holidays, she had me do a little of the prep work ahead of time for her, so all she had to do was assembly. So here's how we made them:
