Palm Sunday Caramel Cross Krispy Treats

Today is Palm Sunday.
It is the beginning of Holy Week.
For the faithful, it is customary to shroud the cross and statues in church and at home, until the end of the celebration of the Lords Passion on Good Friday. These crosses and statues should remain covered until the beginning of the Easter Vigil Mass on Holy Saturday
This practice reminds us with Passion Sunday, we have entered the solemn Holy Week.
