Hello! In the Kitchen with Sharon this week is Patricia Nichols with her no bake haystacks.

Thanksgiving is over and it’s time for Christmas candy and cookies. I asked Patricia for some good recipes for candy and she shared her no bake haystacks. I am making these. They look delicious.

Does anyone else have some cookie and candy recipes to share? If you do, please send them to shughes@timesgazette or call me at 937-393-3456, and I will put you in the kitchen with Sharon.

Thank you so much Patricia for sharing this wonderful recipe.
