Submitted by: DIANEGLORIA

Introduction

Will be less calories than stated, since nutritional label included the syrup, which we do not use in this recipe. This is an alternative to that sugary sweet marshmallow topped usual holiday fare. Though still sweet. Will be less calories than stated, since nutritional label included the syrup, which we do not use in this recipe.
