I love crab! These are perfect for a party, starter or just a snack. Crab is rather expensive... this is my way of being frugal and still being able to enjoy these lil' delites. You won't find alot of filler in my balls. I want you to enjoy the crab! I made these for my Homeowners Annual meeting 10/22/2011. These babies were a hit and not one left on the platter. They will go fast so you may want to sneak 1 or 2 for yourself before serving. These will be perfect for any holiday party! Cooking With Passion, sw:)
