I made this recipe for the first time yesterday for the holiday party we attended. With a few very small changes I will be serving this dish to guests and taking it to party's again and again. I made 45 balls and not a single one was left in fact it was a race and war for the last one.This recipe came with the Kitchen aid free standing mixer I got this weekend. Absolutely delicious.
