MY REVIEW

Every time I've made these they sort of melt in the oven.They come out flat & not like a ball at all. I have refrigerated them then baked them & still no luck Can someone give me tips on what I can do to fix this?

This recipe takes quite a bit of time but is worth it. It is delicious. I have halved the recipe and have frozen fully cooked pom-poms. I just reheated them in the oven until they were heated through.
