Holiday Trash” can be found in the homes of all of my family members during the holidays. My grandmother always made it and had it out. I know it is just as prevalent in my wife’s family. It would not feel like Christmas time without constantly snacking on this everywhere I sit down in any of my loved one’s homes.
