Spinach Cheese Balls

Darci Juris


These delicious balls of joy are kid approved. I shared these with my friend and her 15 month old, and she devoured them. These make a great healthy snack, as well as a great appetizer for any dinner party. Best served when warm. You can also freeze them for ingesting at a later date.
