   “My favorite holiday treat is kind of difficult to make and it takes long. So it is usually only made near December because of my birthday, Christmas, and New Years. It’s called marengo and it’s like a “crunchy cake”!! Because I only am able to have it like one month out of the entire year, I really never can have enough or get tired of it.”Junior Macarena Morales

They taste very rich and amazing in your hot chocolate. There also a perfect treat to have when the weather starts getting colder and you want something sweet to help warm you up.”-Senior Melanie Miguel
