A really easy square recipe that I've made for christmas a number of times. I can't remember the original source, but it was handed down to me from my mom.

This recipe is from Jean Pare's Company's Coming 150 Delicious Squares! And, it is fabulous!! Very unique & tasty! I use maraschino cherries instead of the candied ones. At Christmas time, you can use 1/2 red & 1/2 green cherries for a festive treat.
