Yummy Mini Crab Balls

I love these little balls because not only are they delicious, they are about as easy as they can be! Best (IMHO) with snow crabmeat (I use Wakefield's frozen) they are also delish with imitation crab. Amount varies on the size of the crab balls.
Great as a party appetizer, or even a late night snack!
