    I make these for Christmas - everyone loves them. They are difficult to make - the nut crumble doesn't stick good around the cherry - but once you get the hang of it - mmmm so good.

    I made these one Christmas. They were a big success. Now they are a traditional treat,even the children liked them ( most children don't like cherries. )
