~ Mom's Cheddar Peanut Balls ~

Cassie *


My mom used to have a lot of Beeline & Tupperware parties and was always making little snacks like this to serve to the guests. This was one everyone really seemed to enjoy. You can add your own flavor of seasoning. Curry is what she liked best or she would add chili powder. They're so quick to make and are always a hit.
